Magnolia Mermaid - Easel Cake Card

Happy Tuesday everyone, although this post has gone out on Monday night thanks to an over zealous right finger!
This week at Everybody Art Challenge we have a simple recipe for you to follow which is "three papers, 3 flowers"
I have made an easel cake card after seeing the fantastic designs created by Kathrin of Kruemels Bastel-Blog and her excellent instructions that can be found at Stempeleinmaleins.
Front of card
I've got to say it took me hours and I can assure you it had nothing to do with the instructions or the length of time it usually takes me to choose paper. This time it was what sketch to use, what embellishments to add and box making (I'm not the quickest!)
Inside of Card
Ingredients used:
Base - Core'ordinations Glitter card
Papers - TeaHouse from Dovecraft (I love these pastel papers)
Images - Magnolia Mermaid, Bird and Rpoe from the Summer Stamp Club Kit Medium - Prisma Pencils and Copics Embellishments - various Ribbon, Anchor Brad, 3 Prima Flowers, Candles and String.
What is supposed to look like wooden stumps is rolled up pieces of brown paper, distressed with Prisma Pencils.
Sentiment - Free with some My Minds Eye Papers in a 2010 craft magazine.
Stickles Glitter Glue - around the edge of the sentiment and flowers
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

I hope you like the card and thanks for looking.
