Joan's Touch Challenge #16 Twisted

Good Morning Ladies,
I could not go to bed last night until I finished the second card for Joan's Touch Challenge #16 Twisted
I am having so much fun with this easy peasy fold. To see and join the challenge click on this link...
The requirements this week are as follows:
Make a twisted easel card (instructions are on Joan's blog)
Any color.
Use some patterned paper.
You must use a product that can be purchased at
So here is my second card....
This card started with the vintage embossed lady cut. I love my vintage cuts. The Graphics 45 Secret Garden went perfect with her. So those papers were used for the covers of the card base. The card base is cream. You can purchase Graphics 45 pads from Terri at The vintage lady needed something to rest on so I used Cheery Lynn Designs die DL221 Spring Flower Burst Doily. It was cut using a scrap from my scrap box. I love this die. I purchased it from Joan's Gardens. The roses were created using a Sizzix rolled rose die. They are cut from a white textured cardstock and inked with a creamy brown color box cat's eye chalk ink pad. I purchased this from Terri over a Joan's Gardens. A pearl sprig was added under the flowers. The sentiments are from a cling mount set from TPC. The bow that holds the top of the card up is cut from a Creative Expressions die Classic 3D Bow. I purchased this from Terri at Joan's Gardens. When I used this bow die the first time I did not do it right. Last night it just came to me how to do it. I was thinking why didn't I look up the directions on you tube. But I got it now. I am loving this bow die.
