The challenges are:
Beary Sweet Scrap Challenge #36 - Double or Nothing - 2 easels
Totally Papercrafts Friday Challenges #89 - Layer upon Layer - for multiple layers!
Green is my sister's fav color and since my bro-in-law likes the Denver Broncos, I figured he might like blue! But instead of doing a "his & hers" theme by sides like the first one, I decided to combine the colors together.
I made this the same way... still a 6" x 12"... (except for a few things which I will explain in this post).... if you're curious as to what I did, check out the first one for a more thorough explanation, as I'm not going to go into it all again in this post.
The first thing that is different, is that I did have to "build" this one on a thin piece of chipboard for the needed strength to hold the weight. I did not acheive the same sturdiness as the first with just layers of cardstock, because on this one, the shiny mats around the base and easel panels are just very thin paper instead of heavy cardstock!
Next photos are the close-ups of each side:
Now the center sentiment all decorated with painted mulberry flowers (they were originally white) from I Am Roses:

For these roses, I also used Lindy's Stamp Gang products... are you surprised at all by this? LOL! I "painted" the colors on just like before (again see the first double-twisted easel card post if curious!)
Products from LSG that I used for these roses are:
Starburst Sprays - Afternoon Delight Denim and Hydrangea Blue
Glitz Spritz - Scintillating Silver
Here are some close-up shots of the roses and butterfly embellishments:
Lace border and Leaf punches from Martha Stewart
Rose done in Afternoon Delight Denim Starburst Spray topped with
Scintillating Silver Glitz Spritz from LSG
I had to 'color' the flower that is part of the sticker to match since it was pink!
I used CTMH markers to change the colors!
Rose done in Hydrangea Blue Starburst Spray, again topped
with Scintillating Silver Glitz Spritz
Check out the "sparkle" on this darker rose... AWESOME!
Butterfly punch is also Martha Stewart.
Bling used for bodies are from the Green/Blue assortment from CTMH
