#122 SpinThe Butterfly wheel with F for Flap fold.

We are  now onto the 6th  letter of the alphabet which is F. Winners results for #121 are  now published in the post below. (Sorry for the slight delay). Make sure you check back as it could be you. 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.
  Please note that this Challenge will be running  for 4 weeks and not the usual 2.
You can also enter as many times as you like during this  challenge.
So we have a brand new wheel to spin and this yr we are going to go straight through the letters of the Alphabet starting with A. 

                                                     Come on in.

Lets Spin the Butterfly Wheel.
Each challenge will be a letter of the Alphabet with  a choice of 3 Colours and 2 Themes all beginning with the chosen letter.
New for this Yr. The 7th element of the wheel is a card shape.
(The discerning amongst you will notice that there is now an added page along the top under the Butterfly Banner called Card shapes.)
There will be a card shape for the letter being used for each challenge and I will be showing a tutorial on this page with hints and tips for making the cards. 
The card shape is not mandatory but if you do use it you will qualify for the top prize without having to combine all of the other 6 elements onto your card. You must of course  use your butterfly.   The shapes will all be easy ones, just a different way to either fold or cut your basic cardbase. 

If you don't want to use the card shape then 
You can either choose a Theme or a Colour from the wheel + Butterfly  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.

So lets get started.
The wheel is
Flap fold Card.

Your 6 elements are  French Rose/Flax/Firebrick Red /Feathers/Flowers + your Butterfly.

Here is my inspiration for you. 

I have started  you off with a very simple design and fold. There are so many different ways to make a Flap fold card which I will be showing you over the next 4 weeks so keep checking back both here and on my blog for further inspiration. 

My first card uses Flap fold card/Flax/Firebrick Red/Flowers/Butterfly

My second card uses Flap fold card/Flax/French Rose/Flowers/Butterfly

Version II is for a Diagonal flap Fold.
My Thirdcard uses Flap fold card/Feathers/French Rose/Flowers/Butterfly
