CraftMad card swap

Every month CraftMad have a card swap.

The January swap was to make 2 cards using some recycling.

Well, that was a bit of a challenge for me, but I got some ideas, and put them aside to make up some cards.  Fast forward to the end of the month, and I suddenly remember I haven't made my cards.  I knew I had put aside some stuff, but do you think I could find it?   Then I remembered, I did a bit of tidying up!  I had put away all the stuff I had set aside!  Talk about having a 'DOH!' moment ;-)

Anyway, I got to making up these two cards (I can show here, coz my swap partner does not read my blog)  Just in case your ARE looking, Tracey, your cards will be in the mail shortly ;-)

The recycled items are the white panels which are the cardboard dividers from the Lipton Tea Bag box.

Panels have been run through Cuttlebug and inked.  Flourishes image heat embossed and hand coloured with water colours.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

White panels run through Cuttlebug and inked, layered onto cardstock.  Sentiment heat embossed and fluffy butterfly added with foam dots.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenge:
