Long cards

I made these two cards for Clean and Simple's #140 challenge found HERE:
This was the sketch this week:
I made both the cards 4 x 8, so they would fit into business sized envelopes.  I made the polka dotted panels 1/4" smaller than the card.  For the first I stamped the largest A Muse butterfly I had in black and then cut out the smaller butterfly with designer paper and my A Muse butterfly die.  Attached him to the black butterfly and added 3 red rhinestones.  The sentiment is Fiskars.  The second, I used the maple leaf from Papertrey Ink Leaf Prints stamp set and the coordinating die.  The sentiment is from the same Fiskars set.  VERY simple cards...but clean and SIMPLE...that is the name of the game, right??!:)
Thanks for looking, have a great day:)!!

Things I used:
Stamps: A Muse butterfly, Fiskars sentiments, Papertrey Ink Leaf Prints
Paper: Real red, bazzill black, papertrey ink white, soft suede, kraft
 Ink: stazon black, soft suede
Extras: clear embossing powder, A Muse butterfly die, Papertrey Ink leaf die, pop up dots, red rhinestones, polka dot embossing folder
