Vellum Butterfly - Tag You're It!

I've not managed a Tag You're It challenge for a few weeks, so time to make amends! This week it is a sketch:I've been asked for a Birthday card with a butterfly, so I thought this would be perfect! Sorry about the fuzziness of the photo - my husband is in charge of photo taking during the week as daylight does not extend beyond my working hours. He's just got in a bit too close for the photo and not used the macro setting....

The butterfly has been cut from 3 shades of vellum - deep purple, lilac and clear. Silver seed beads have been added to the body and I've made the antenna from silver wire. The backing paper is Dovecraft Amethyst collection 6 x 6 which I really should use more often as it is really pretty paper! Sentiment is computer generated and has been layered with the same card as the tag (which I found in my card tub - I think it came from Lynsey as I don't remember buying it!) And the eyelet is from the generous Kath!
I will add the tag to a card as it would look a bit daft just as it is!
  • Backing paper: Dovecraft 6 x 6 Amethyst papers
  • Dies: Sizzix Butterfly
  • Other Bits: All from my stash
