Tag Tuesday - Butterflies

Today's tag challenge at  Kard Krazy was butterflies. 
(click for better view)

I used part of an old French music sheet as the background, layered an information scrap torn from an old nature book and then used an old image of butterflies and a dandelion, altered with Spica pens. Watercolor pencils, distress inks, and sheer multicolored ribbon were incorporated into the piece. There is gold leafing around the outside of the tag, but it's not showing very well.
