Add a butterfly

Tilda is stamped with memento and coloured with promarkers, then mounted onto a doiley and CD. Paper is from Wild Rose Studios Butterfly collection. Card is finished with a ribbon and bow, button and some bling.
Challenges I'm entering:
Just Magnolia - buttons, bows and bling
DYSU - make it pop
Paper play - use something not intended for crafting (CD)
CCEE - add a butterfly
Aud Sentiments - Happy Mothers Day
The Emerald Fairies - Anything goes

Grrrr just made some changes to the card and changed the photo - realised the brown spots on Tildas face is the silicon gel showing through - will wait until morning to see what it looks like then, but looks like I'll have to redo the image. Knew I shouldn't have bought a different make!! All fixed now with some paper piecing :)
