TYI and Cuttlebug Challenges

I missed both these challenges last week - I had a stinking cough, cold and sore throat that my mojo went on a 'go slow'.
The
TYI challenge was purple. I found some wonderful butterfly and script paper in my stash and created my tag around this. I actually ended up covering most of the butterflies up - silly or what?
When I'd finished this I decided to use the same paper for the Cuttlebug challenge which is distressing (ooh - I do love distressing). I was deciding what to use as an image and the Tag kept catching my eye - why not I thought they match perfectly.


The Tag



The card


And finally together

Materials
BC - bazzill : Papers - Imaginations Buttery Text : Cuttlebug & Spots & Dots folder, Textile folder and QuicKuts flourish : Butterfly stamp - Creative Stamping :
EK Success - Retro flower punches : Rest from stash
