Tag Tuesday Surprise Me

Louise has another captivating challenge for us over at Kard Krazy - this week's Tag Tuesday Challenge is "Surprise Me."  So what's the surprise in my unassuming little butterfly tag? .....
A Blooming Contessa hiding amongst the blossoms!  The butterfly is attached only by a brad at the tip of her wing.  Ms Contessa is from Stampington, colored with Copics and Distress Inks.  The flower trim at the bottom is very vintage, and started out creamy vintage white.  I dabbled some coordinating Copics over the lace, and voila - custom vintage trim.

There are some amazing and beautiful tags over at Kard Krazy already (Louise's just keeps getting more surprising with every view!), so lots of inspiration to be had.  Come play?
