Pixie Snippets challenge 144

My card for the snippets challenge this week is one which I CASE'd from Sue Wilson's blog although mine isn't exactly like hers.  It involved loads of cutting various die shapes from the French Collection sets, even as far as cutting the centre layers in half and rearranging them within the outer window which frames them.  I won't be making too many like this because it took me simply ages cutting and then assembling the various shapes and then of course there are the flowers and leaves. but I do like the final result.

Dies - Sue Wilson French collection dies and ovals from Austrian collection
Flowers - Sue Wilson's faux quilled blooms and grand vinery dies
Background - rose embossing folder
