Two Floral Cluster Circle Thank You Cards

The X Cut 'Floral Cluster Circle' die is so pretty - flowers and a butterfly - what's not to love?!  For these two thank you cards I kept to the same design but used different colour schemes - one soft and one bold.  The cards measure 5 1/4" square and I glued a 4" circle behind the cluster circles before popping them up.  I die cut just the butterfly portion of the die from patterned papers and inset them, raising the wings up.  I then blinged with lots of rhinestones!

Here's the soft version with SU! Pool Party and Brushed Silver CS together with a grey damask patterned paper.

Here's the inside and the envelope.  For the butterflies on the envelopes I used Memory Box dies where the centres of the butterflies remain attached to the card after die cutting.  I snipped with my scissors to release them so I could use the positive shapes on the envelope flaps.   

Here's the bold version with SU! Blackberry Bliss and Brushed Silver CS together with a floral patterned paper.
