Card challenges - MCM and Paper Variety

This week's MCM from featured so many gorgeous blues that I decided to not only follow the sketch but do a blue card from my scrap stash.

I also decided to tie this card into the newest challenge over at The Paper Girls Challenge Blog - use a stamp as a background/accent element. That was one massive stamp by the way, I had a bit of a fuss with it, but it turned out all right in the end.

Amy Tangerine - blue cardstock
MME - scraps and die cut
Jenny Bowlin - Butterfly embelly
Martha Stewart - butterfly stamp
Zing Powder -silver
ColorBox - Ocean 

For The Paper Variety Challenge I decided to start with this sketch from SS and then it sort of evolved. I had also really taken to the idea of using a stamp as a background element. The TPV challenge was to use three in a row or diagonally of a tic-tac-toe board full of options. I chose: embossing/card/die cut.

Embossing: green on green as a background element
Die cut: MME Abbey Lane tag
