Triple Tiered Easel Card for a Favorite Aunt

This past Monday's challenge on Splitcoaststampers' Try A New Technique was called "Either/Or but Both is More".  The challenge was to create a Triple Tiered Easel card and/or a card using the "See Through Image" technique as described here:
It was a real challenge to create the Triple Tiered Easel card as the examples and instructions shown were a little difficult for me to follow.  The "See Through Image" instructions and examples were a little easier.  I attempted to do both challenges in this birthday card I created for a dear aunt who will be celebrating her 88th birthday next month:

This is the card in a closed position

This is the top layer when closed and will be the third tier when in the easel position.
I used Vellum for the top layer with a computer printed sentiment. I made the flowers and leaves from several flower punches and the butterflies from a Martha Stewart punch.
This is the layer in the second tier when in the easel position.
Top layer is vellum with computer created sentiment embellished with a blingy swirl and butterflies.
I created the large butterfly and leaf by stamping the image on acetate and using glue and glitter on the opposite side.
This shows all three tiers in the easel postions. 
The top layer of the third tier is cut using the "See Through Image" technique. 
I used Stampin' Up's Flower of the Month stamp for July and a circle Nestability die.
The image was colored with Copic Markers.
Card base and tiers were created with Scalloped Circle Nestability dies.
Paper:  SU  Taken With Teal, gold metallic, s.e.i. Field Notes collection, glitter cardstock
