Twisted Easel Card

Thursday is here.....I have a twisted Easel card to share with you today.  I have wanted to try one of these for a little while.  Perfect opportunity came this month for the Craftmad Swap (see all the other Easel cards here) ....we have two swap two easel cards.
So I dug out my Blossom Bazzill for the base card.  This actually starts as a normal square card and then you fold the front of the card diagonally to create the twist, then decorate.  I added a lovely gold border sticker and used my versa mark ink to stamp little cupcakes on half of the front of the card.  On the other half I added a layer of Java Bazzill and this fun Sweetiepie Cupcake Paper.  My friend, Helen, kindly lent me her oval Spellbinder so I put it to use on this card.  I cut two Java Bazzill and one in white with the image.  Layered them up and added the Happy Birthday sticker.  I won this lovely cupcake image a little while ago it is from Limited Runs Digi's.  I coloured it with my Copic Pens....the colours were a little brighter than the paper so I went over all the colours with my light grey Copic Pen...perfect.  Added a touch of Kindy Glitz to the icing.

The inside I have just added the strip of Java Bazzill card and Sweetiepie Cupcake paper with a flower made from different paper flowers.  This strip is needed to hold the Easel in place.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
