Two cards done in Threes - challenge 68

I was inspired by the colour combinations and the predominant use of  items arranged in "threes".
In this first card, I used the stamp set: Pedaling Past, stamping bicycle images on dusty durango, green galore, and chocolate chip cardstock with dusty durango ink and then embossing the images with clear embossing powder.
These were mounted on a strip of vanilla cardstock which was sponged with dusty durango to mimic the shading around the pillows in the diagram.
Other:  basic card - chocolate chip cardstock, then a layer of whisper white which was embossed with the polka dot embossing folder.
Punches:  word label, modern word label, 1/2" round (upon which I put crystal effects.

In this second card, I again used a similar colour scheme.
Stamps:  All a Flutter, Tropical Party, In  a Word
Paper:  chocolate chip, Very vanilla, vellum
Inks:  Always artichoke, dusty durango, chocolate chip and pumpkin pie markers
Other:  Finial embossing folder, scallop oval punch, dusty durango ribbon. crystal effects.
The butterflies were stamped with dusty durango ink, embossed with clear embossing powder, coloured with pumpkin pie and chocolate chip markers (on the back), and cut out.  The wings were cut in the  middle to make their wings stand up more realistically.
