To and Fro Puzzle

Please scroll down if looking for Pixie Cottage Post~~~~
Be sure to read to bottom of post for chance at prize!!
Took time to create a card with this fabulous Sugar Nellie image--called "To and Fro".  I had colored her up several weeks ago and kept admiring the image and today finally I decided to give her a home :)
Made a card for The Sugar Bowl challenge!!  Which is this sketch and the optional theme of using Kraft paper :)
Now I have a story to share here.......As I got the papers together---I started to die cut the image and guess what had happened???  Oh yes the die moved as I ran it thru my machine and I was ready to cry.  As I looked at the 2 pieces in my little brain started thinking.....tick tick tick..Hmmmmm......I had used the SB deckled rectangle die soooooo I will Intentionally create a puzzle piecing image.  So Here it is.  Cut down the outside edges of each piece with a Fiskars decorative scissor and then Inked all edges with TH vintage photo .   I then tape pieces together on back and used on card!!!   Would you call it the Puzzle piecing technique LOL!!
The doily behind image is SB Contemporary Hearts and that is layered onto a SB Scallop Circle.  Papers are BG Manilla pad, shabby green door damask, kraft cs and the pink I am not sure.   The 2 rectagular panels were dry embossed with SU folders and then Inked with TH vintage photo ink.
Embellished with ZVA self adhesive pearls--I copic colored the center pearl to match her shirt ;)  and MS butterflies
Inside of card----  Oval is for personal message.
