Rainbow Theme Mini Easel Tilda card

Good morning and happy Thursday. Remember the rainbow challenge over at Lollipop Crafts Challenge? Well, here is another rainbow card I made to share with you. This is a mini round easel card. I got the tutorial from my very talented blogging friend Norma. If you wanted to try it, you can see tutorial from Norma's blog.

I am using this card for the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew Challenge - Let's Punch It
Simon Says Challenge - Punch
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Sparkly & Bright
Craft Your Passion Challenge #29 - Add glitter, sparkles
Lexi's Creations Challenge #25 - Birthday
Top Tip Tuesday #7 - Anything Goes
Delightful Challenges - Circles
OSAAT #36 - All Celebrations
Challenge Up Your Life challenge #30 - Easel Card

This is my finished card. I used Lazy Summer Day Tilda from Magnolia-licious. Although it's currently out of stock, but I am sure if you email the store, Diana from the store will be able to get back to you. This Tilda is perfect size for a mini card. I also used distress crackle paint and glossy accents on the chipboard letter "B" and the butterfly punchie.

Closer view on Lazy Summer Day Tilda

Here are some closer view of the crackle paint chipboard and butterfly shape. I first painted them with 'broken china' distress crackle paint, then I sprayed some (homemade) metallic green shimmery mist on them, then when it dried, I applied glossy accents on them to get a shiny effect. Yep, a lot of work for just little embellishments, but I really like the outcome. I will do up a tutorial on a very easy made shimmery mist in a later date. Please stay tune!!

Here is the view when this mini easel card opened.

I stamped sentiment on vellum and cut them with spellbinder.

Wow - this is such a cute card! I've never tried a circle easel card before so I'll have to give that a try sometime. And the bonus fold-out is fabulous! ;D

Now if this card doesn't cheer a person up nothing will. Lovely little easel card Cabio. Love your distress crackle paint look on the butterfly and the B. I must get some of that stuff and have a go.
Your colouring of Tilda is lovely.
