Under the Butterfly Shade

I recently discovered Di's Digi Downloads and just had to buy myself a few (read about 10 here!) of these cute little girls and teddies, so I thought I would enter a card into Digi Design's Challenge to use ribbons and/or bows. This is also for Bunny Zoe's May Challenge to use flowers and charms (I have a cute little butterfly charm hanging off my bow), For Open Minded Crafting Challenge #12 to use something with wings, Papertake Weekly's Challenge Anything Goes and Sketchy Challenges #75 to use Hilde's sketch below.

And here's my card. The parasol/umbrella looks so much more orangey in the photo than in real life. In reality it's more of a golden yellow with a hint of orange (totally used the wrong colour combo and didn't check it on scrap card first!).
