How May I Direct Your Call? - A Day For Daisies

Hello and Happy Day to everyone.  My card for today is my entry for the latest Team A Challenge at:

 The Challenge this week is to use Dies from Cheery Lynn Design. 

The prize for this weeks Challenge is this wonderful Waltzing Matilds die from Cheery Lynn Designs.

 Many congratulations to Marilyn  the winner and Top 3 of the Team B Challenge.

The image on my card is from A Day For Daisies and is entitled - How May I Direct your Call? and I have made a Pocket Style Card.

List of Materials used to make this Card :o)

Image as above  coloured using Flexmarker and Promarker Pens and Prismacolour Pencils.  I have also used the technique Paper Piecing to make the dress and furniture.  The Digital papers Petunia Parade, Summer Fun and Gingam,  are from

Printed onto Joanna Sheen Satin Elegance Papers and are lovely.  I have also used the papers to create the background/mounting layers of the card.  Core'dinations Card has been used for the base of the Card and quality white card for the layers.

Cheery Lynn Dies Doily - French Pastry and Lace Faerie Queen Butterfly have been cut and distress with ink.  A butterfly Die Cut top has been added to the card and the borders are cut using a Martha Stewart Punch.

Ribbon, flowers, and swirls are from my stash.

I would like to enter this card for the following Challenges :o)
