TRDT~ sketch challenge

Hello my Peeps,
I got a little design team inspiration for you. another great kit from Daisy. Ephemeral Love Affair (available here: Tsunami Rose Designs Printable Paper packs- http://www.zibbet.com/tsunamirose/section/printable-paper-packs)  it truly is a cute kit.

this card is whats called a twisted easel card and is so easy to make, swear to you 2 score lines is all. you take a 6x12 piece of card stick score it on the 6 inch, then take one of the 6 inch squares and score it diagonally in half.  Then you just decorate. i like  to make my faceplate first, which is everything on the green cardstock. so its a 5 3/4 in square of green  then a 5 1/2 square of ELA then the border strips, with a bird cage cut from french manor with a bow, pearl strands and a pearl button on top. then the little merci'. then you glue the face plate to the bottom half of your diagonal square. which gives you the pop up. when you close it it all lays nice and flat for mailing. on the bottom is a 5 3/4 square of ELA with a half of another square  and then a line of pearl trim going down the center and then the stamp cut out with my 3 inch scallop circle punch, which acts like a stopper to keep the top in place.
