The CD Sunday Challenge - Wonderful Wings

From a very very wet windy Somerset,  If you thought spring was coming today's weather makes it further away than ever, heavy snow in the north of England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland, floods in the south west,  but here its rain and oh boy has it rained.  Don't think we are not getting the snow it looks like we shall have some on Sunday,   and its going to stay cold until Easter.  Its more like January than March.  enough of the weather I hear you say.
Today I bring you my card for the CD Sunday Challenge this week its Wonderful wings.  As I have run out of ink for my printer, I went though my craft papers to see if I had anything printed and not used and found this one, I am sure its from Joanna Sheens Enchanted Dreams, which I used for the backing paper.  I used this beautiful die cut tree that Suzanne so kindly  cut for me,( Suzanne its wonderful and thank you),  I cut out a piece of green miri board for the backing of the tree and then silicone glued it to give it height off the card. The Peel off butterflies were put on parchment paper and embossed then glued onto the design and the ribbon is from Joanna Sheens on line shop.  Finished off with gold peel off's and pearls which I won for my card from a previous challenge. They were sent to me by Carol from the CD Sunday Challenge and I cant remember which card won but it was last year.
I love butterflies and they have such beautiful wings that's why I chose them for this challenge.
I hope where ever you are you are warm, dry and cosy and until we meet again take care

  8. What a pretty card Margaret. Love that tree and the way you have backed it with the green miri card. Michelle x

  9. Lovely card, Margaret. I'd trade you our weather for your rain, but you don't want our snow, I'm sure. (I don't want it either!) Let's hope the sun brings us both warmer weather soon.

  10. A super kaleidoscope of butterflies and a wonderful tree. Thanks for sharing with us again at CD Sunday Challenges. Caz

  11. I didn't even know that the peel offs could be embossed! Another amazing card!

    We'll be getting three to six inches of snow on Sunday night, with cold temps continuing through next week. Looks like a cold Easter, but it IS still March. Wish Easter could always be late April!

  12. Hi Margaret. We have snow now. Quite thick but starting to thaw. It is slipping off the car in lumps.
    Another lovely card especially with addition of all those butterflies.
    I know you haven't got a die cutting machine so I will try and remember to cut extra when using mine and pop some in an envelope for you. As long as you don't mind what you get.
    Thank you for your continued support.
