SPINNING, SUSPENDED BUTTERFLY EASEL CARD

This may not be my first spinning/suspension image card, but it's the first one I've made that's also an easel card.  It was Sharon White who shared instructions for this easel card, but I made mine to be 4.25" square.  Sharon used fishing line on her card, but all I had on hand was clear stretchy jewelry cord, which worked okay.  It's fun to twist the layered butterflies and then watch them spin.  Stampin' Up! products used to create my card include:  3" Circle die, Beautiful Wings Embosslits die, rhinestone jewels, Eyelet Border punch, and "All Holidays" stamp set for the sentiment.  My card stock colors are Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, and Rose Red.
