Playing with a New Die!

I got some new dies in the mail yesterday from Terri Urban At Joan's Gardens. She always gives great prices, and always charges only what it costs her to mail the products.

One of the die sets I got was the Sue Wilson Mini Striplet Butterflies in Flight. As you can see, the butterflies on the right match perfectly with the filigree outline on the left. I cut out two of the filigree parts and stacked them for some extra dimension. The sentiment is from an old Hampton Arts stamp that I've had for three years, and is punched out with a one inch scalloped punch and mounted on a similar 1 1/4 inch scalloped circle punched backing.

As you can see, each of the die cut outs matches perfectly with the filigree piece.

I am entering this card in the following challenges ending:
