Crafty Sprouts - CASE the DT challenge

After a lot of browsing around the Crafty Sprouts DT blogs, I found one that inspired me to create.  I am linking up with the 2012 #1 Crafty Sprouts - CASE the DT challenge!

All dp papers were gathered from my scraps
Desert card stock for base.  Twine - Cappuccino by the Twinery.  Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Vintage Photo.
I used the Crafty Sprouts stamp set Besties for Life for the sentiment.
I also used   the following Unity Stamps:   Butterfly - from A Mother's Love;   Fence and flowers -  from KOM 03/10 - Rockin' it Unity Style;  Tree - from Unity Grab Bag purchase.  
Tree blossoms were cut using the Flower Shoppe Cartridge.

Here is the card I used as inspiration to CASE from Crafty Carley's post on October 18, 2011
I loved the twine wing on the cute little birdie, so I decided to try this technique for the body of my butterfly.  This is the first time I tried this technique and it proved quite difficult.  But with more practice I hope to get better.  I also liked the bright cheery colors.  I love spring and am eager for the season to arrive.  Thanks for the inspiration Carley!!!

I am also linking my card to these additional challenges:
