Welcome back to the Butterfly Challenge. Thank you all for playing along with the last challenge.  Winners results for #104 are published in the post below. Make sure you check back as it could be you. Only 2 winners claimed their prizes. Can I please ask that  Winners do acknowledge their prize in the comments on the Winners post as well as emailing their details to me. This way I will know to expect an email.  Please state if you are only playing for fun so that it gives someone else the chance to win.  There are 3 prizes for this challenge again. Challenge will run for 4 weeks to take into account the school holidays in  most countries.
Challenge will therefore close on Tuesday 28th August at 8pm (GMT).

#105 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with the letter F. 


Ferrari Red/French Blue/Fuchsia/Folds more than 1/ Flowers/Frame It/ Butterfly.
