WOW with Flowers and Wings

Hi to you all and thanks for taking the time to drop by. Firstly let me apologise for not having been visiting much this past week or so... I have had those horrible germs that I can't seem to shake off so have been suffering with my sinuses and aching eyes. I will make sure I get round to visit you over the next few days though.

If you were to ask me which of my crafting tools I couldn't do without then I would have to say my Grand Calibur which my dad bought me a year ago. There are such a variety of dies and I can't help but buy more whenever there are any sales or new designs and then I only use them once or twice. So I reckon it's time to start using them a bit more and I've made this card today, which I must admit I am pleased with.

This is what I used
Hammered texture base card
From my stash - Pearls, Sentiment (attached with sticky pads)
Dies - Memory Box 'Fairytale Flower Border' (this is really fabulous)
           Cheery Lynn DL112 Exotic Butterfly, B193 Hummingbird & B152 Miniature Rose
Punch - Dovecraft Daisy (for the flower centres)

Here's another angle to show the 3D of the dies

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Simon Says Stamp challenge 'White on White'
Dies To Die For challenge 'Flower Power'
Allsorts challenge 'Things With Wings'
Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge 'Flowers and Pearls'
