Butterfly Tag

I am entering this tag into this weeks pan pastels challenge.  Their theme is bright colours with spring being in the air.  I used the bandana technique which you can find here, but instead of using inks I used pan pastels.  I used orange, yellow, violet, turquoise and green.  I decided to go with a butterfly theme as I though it was spring / garden related.  I outlined all the black stamped images with a white pen.  I dyed the ribbon with distress stains and attached it with a bright blue safety pin.  I added a metal butterfly charm over the large butterfly middle left.
