Dream Valley Die Cuts and Punches

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with my DT card for Dream Valley Challenges where our theme this fortnight is 'Die Cuts and Punches'. For this card I used a Saturated Canary image ( can you tell she's my favourite?!) which I coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Copics to match my Lucy Cromwell papers from Papermania. I then cut round the image leaving a wide border and placed her on a panel of patterned paper matted on White glitter card. I used complimenting papers as my base then made a border with another paper with the addition of some American Crafts polka dot ribbon. I placed her panel at a slight slant to add interest. I cut butterflies from white glitter card with a Memory box die, and a Spellbinder die. I placed the little butterflies fluttering away from her net and a larger butterfly as a 3D embellishment in the right hand corner. Lastly I added three card candy at the top left hand side to balance my embellishments.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
