Butterfly Thanks (Newton's Nook sentiment stamp)

Hi, everybody!  I'm back again today!  Am I the only one that gets carried away with all the challenges?  I just can't help myself!  When I get inspired, I have to just go with it!  This time it's the Cupcake Inspirations challenge - the colours are just scrumptious!  You can see them below.  They're being sponsored by one of my all-time favourite stamp companies - Newton's Nook - so I just had to play along!  And I used a Newton's Nook clear stamp from the Simply Sentimental set too!  I stamped it in Staz-On Timber Brown.

The other challenge that inspired me is Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge.  I haven't played there in a while and this time she wants us to use 3 patterned papers - so I did just that!  The papers are from Forever in Time, Momenta, and unknown (received in a prize pack I won from Colette - thank you!). The brown polka-dot strip is washi tape (Downtown Tape) that I cut straight to fit the space.   

The butterfly is from Dollarama and I added a brown Robin's Nest Dew Drop and two small sequins, brown and orange.  Oh, and here's the yummy inspirational photo at Cupcake Inspirations:
