Butterfly by Crazy Town

I went to my local craft store yesterday for a full day class making Saturated Canary cards and whilst there I had a bit of a splurge, including this gorgeous new Tilda stamp which fits perfectly with Totally Tilda's Challenge #74 which was to make a card inspired by a song title - well one of my fave oldies is Butterfly by Crazy Town and just had to use this stamp for it! (Just glad we didn't have to be inspired by the actual lyrics as they're a little naughty!). This one is also for Marvelous Magnolia's Challenge #32 to use bright colours and for Totally Gorguss' Challenge #189 to make a birthday card.

And here's she is...This card seemed to take its own path this afternoon. The tag was supposed to be a pull out one but kept falling off the card so I decided to stick it on permanently instead which changed where I put everything else, but I do quite like it!
