Thank You Cards Using Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Hi fellow crafters!!  I hope everyone is OK now that the hurricane and heavy rains has passed over most of the southern states.  Those things are very dangerous and frightening.
I created two Thank You cards using CTMH Clementine Paper Packet.  I love this paper.  The colors coordinate so well.  I think this is my favourite one right now.  CTMH has come out with really great colors and prints in the new Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book.  Check it out on my side bar.  They also have several great stamp sets.
My lighting wasn't very good today; so the colors aren't as true as they should be.   I did the best I could with what I was working with.  It was a cloudy morning; so not much sun.
Thank You Card #1

Inside Card # 1
I forgot I hadn't taken pictures of this card yet and I wrote in it; so the little butterfly and the flower on sentiment area are just there until I post this.  I am removing them after the post.  I wanted you to see the inside; so I covered the writing.  Sorry.  It has been one of those days.
 Thank You Card #2
This is the same paper as the inside above and the colors look different because of the lighting.  Not sure what happened; but the one above is more true to color than this one. 

 Inside Card # 2
These colors are much more beautiful than they appear here.  I have tried to adjust the lighting; but it just isn't working today.  The cards look nice in person. 
Supplies I used for these two cards:
Card base is 4 x 5 1/2
Die cuts are from Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
Paper - CTMH Clementine Paper Packet
Sentiments - CTMH "A Huge Thanks" for consultants only
Inks used - CTMH Twilight and CTMH Sorbet on inside of cards

Butterfly punch - EZ triple butterfly punch
Bling - Blue butterfly is Recollections Rhinestones
Bling - Orange butterfly is want2scrap.com
