A Double Easel card

 Don't you just love an easel card?
This one uses a double easel ... a very clever idea inspired by Sharon Makin from Crafter's Anonymous.
 I have made mine with the butterfly stamp from the gorgeous Strength and Hope stampset.
This I think would work for any special event such as a wedding, engagement or graduation card.
I've mainly used basic black ink for all my stamping and versamark for the embossed sentiment.
I stamped over the strip of "Love Letter" DSP and wrapped a piece of black satin ribbon around the base.
The Topnote die makes a stunning statement on this project in sahara sand and black. I have run it through the vintage embossing folder for some deep texture.
The centres of the butterflies are the vintage brads.
Can you pick the mistake I made with this card...?
Card Recipe:
Stampsets: Strength and Hope, Curly Cute, Teeny Tiny sentiments.

Tools and Accessories:
Silver embossing powder, heat gun.
