Operation Tackle that Bead Stash

Inspired by a Song 
will be this months
challenge theme.
It can be any song. Any genre or decade.
Not necessarily the title..but what inspires you.
Any craft technique but it must include beads.
This is what I did.
So for added fun... 
I'll be giving those who stop by my 
blog a chance to win
A Surprise Prize
 from me. 
Simply leave a comment along 
with your guess. 
The first correct answer will win!
If no one correctly answers by the end of the month,
 then all names
 will go in a hat for a random drawing.

The correct answer is... 
Dog and Butterfly by Heart.
Clearly you all could see the butterfly.
But what may not have been so clear was the  is a dog collar with a bone... 
and I added a little heart charm too.

We have a winner
Katherine Thompson!
Hope you'll enjoy your Surprise!
