Welcome back to the new style/format Butterfly Challenge. Thank you all for playing along  with the last challenge.  Numbers were  up so hope the new colour combination will still be to your liking.    Winners results for #97 are  published  in the post below. Make sure you check back as it could be you. All the prizes have been claimed and sent out on the last challenge. 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.

Come on in.

Lets Spin the Butterfly Wheel.

Each challenge will still be a letter of the Alphabet but there will  now be a choice of 3 Colours and 3 Themes all beginning with the chosen letter.
You must use your butterfly/ies on your creation, 
then you can either choose a Theme or a Colour from the wheel  to be entered  for the 1st Prize.
If you use a Butterfly + a Theme + a Colour from the wheel then 
you  will  be entered into the 2nd Prize. 
Please state in your post which part of the wheel you are using to play with.
New for this Yr.
If you manage to use all 7 elements of the wheel then you will be entered into a 3rd Prize.

So lets get started.
The wheel for this challenge is

#98 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with the letter T. 

A couple of bloggers have queried the colour of Thistle with me. I have used  Wikipedia's  excellent site for obtaining most of the colours chosen for the wheels. I then went through all my Promarkers,Marvey le PlumeII, Graph'it and Spectrum Noir pens to find the nearest colour match for me to use.
Below is the pen colour I found nearest to Thistle and is what I have used for my cards. Hope this helps.


Here is my inspiration for you.

 My First card. Using Butterfly/ Tomato / Twine.

 My Second card. Using Butterflies as the two Identical Items/ Teal.



 My Third card.  Using Butterflies / Thistle/ Triangles.

Last card uses all seven elements. 




Please go to my blog here  for how they were made.

Lets see if anyone  use all seven elements of the wheel for their card.

Beautiful cards!! Love this challenge. Teal is one of my favorite colors!

I tried my best to make a card for the last challenge, but never finished one so I'll give it another go! The colors this time around will take a little creative thinking on my part but I am eager to try. Is thistle a pale pink?

Rebecca Yahrling said...

Your cards are both lovely! Teal is one of my favorite
colors so was so happy to see it on the wheel. I thought
I'd give a go at using both colors since it's not a color
combo I would ever think of on my own. Then I thought, well,
why not tro for all seven items. But wait. What is thistle?
I've heard of it, but had to google what it looks like (I was
thinking it was an herb, not a flower! lol). So then I wasn't
sure about THAT being part of my card. And then I came across
something that might work (I will leave that to you to decide!)
so my card is what I came up with. And that's a yes, please,
to play for a prize. :-)

I am intrigued with the the way you (and others) are able to make lovely cards using all 7 elements! I am sure if I tried to make one, it would look like I put glue on my dustpan and swept the debris from my craft room floor into it! lol...

Fabulous cards, Mrs A.! Thanks for another fun challenge!!

Wasn't sure about tomato or thistle, but always love teal. I was going to do two identical butterflies, but they looked better different! Great challenge, thanks :)
