It's Fussy and Fancy Time!

Hello Everyone!
It's time once again for a new challenge over at the 

 Today's theme was chosen by our very talented Annie, and is true to our blog name . . .


Here's my creation . . .

I began with a beautiful background designer paper from the Paper Studio called Country Road.   Then began my layering with a variety of dies.  I'm in need of several birthday cards for an upcoming Spring show and I think I'm off to a good start with this card.

Dies I've used . . .

Sue Wilson Designs - Cathedral Background

Sue Wilson Designs - Finishing Touches - Trailing Ivy

Sue Wilson Designs - Canadian Collection - Toronto

Sue Wilson Designs - Daisy Cluster

Cheery Lynn Designs 'Exotic Butterfly - sm' DL113
which doesn't seem to be available any longer.

The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday.  The little butterflies were punch from the same Tim Holtz Oxide Distress Inks panel as the flowers/large butterfly using the '3-in-1' punch by Martha Stewart.  A few amber sequins were added for a finishing touch.
