Polkadoodle Challenge 11 - Animals or Birds

It's time for another Polkadoodle challenge and I hope I can be forgiven for not quite reading the theme brief properly! The theme is:

Animals or Birds

And I've classed the butterfly as an animal...... I think I had winged things in my head as my interpretation of a bird.....!

I've used the fab Sundae of Seasons cd for the butterfly image and the backing paper. I printed the butterfly a few times onto vellum and cut them out, layering up with foam pads on the body bit. I found some rather fab satin edged organza ribbon which matched the colour scheme perfectly.

Good luck with the challenge - for more details pop over to the blog and you can see the rest of the Design Teams fab creations!
