Flight of the Butterfly and ATS Challenge Card

Good Wednesday Morning!
I discovered something yesterday...I shouldn't have cleaned my stamping area before going on vacation....know why?!
I can't find things now...like my SAMJ...lol so that is why my dots don't line up very good with the solid butterfly image....I had to eyeball it...ugh!
I took Beate's suggestion yesterday and go find some challenges to get my creative juices flowing!
This first card is for Julee's Mojo sketch this week. When I first saw Tangerine in the catty I wasn't too sure of it but I'm liking it more and more ;)

Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly; Cardstock: Choc Chip, Tangerine, WW and Haiku DP; Inks: Choc Chip and Tangerine; Accessories: Nesties, Small and Lg Oval Punches, Choc Poly Twill, Scallop Edge Punch, Paper Piercer, Dimensionals

I loved the look of Beate's sketch from last week and really wanted to give it a go but struggled to find the right images. Since I had the Flight of The Butterfly out I stayed with that and the papers. This card is a 5 x 5 square.

Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly; Cardstock: Choc Chip, So Saffron, WW and Haiku DP; Inks: Choc Chip, So Saffron, Tangerine; Accessorires: Circle Nesties, So Saffron Brads, 1/4" circle punch, Dimensionals

It's Wednesday so that means it's time for another All That Scraps Challenge. This week we were challenged to make a SCENTED card. It's been forever since I pulled out some of my scented embossing powders. I've used the Sweet Treats stamp set because of the ice cream ;) The chocolate scoop is covered with Gel-A-Tins Gelly Powder scent Choc Bliss.

Since I made this before leaving for vacation and had this post ready to go...I don't know all the details on the card....sorry :(

Thanks for stopping by!

Yeah - that card looks AWFUL because of the buggered up dots - NOT! Only you would notice that! That second card is so cute - I love the loop dee doo that the words do before you get to the butterfly.

Love the butterfly cards...oh and the tangerine is lovely!!! Is the butterfly a new SU set?? I have briefly looked at a catalogue, but will have to look some more.
Cleaning your space is always nice, but I usually have a hard time finding my stuff again...LOL

Wonderful wonderful cards! Love this new butterfly set. I still haven't gotten my new SU! stuff and had the same reaction on the tangerine. I'm anxious to see it irl. It looks beautiful here.
