#121 Spin The Butterfly wheel with E for Easel.

We are  now onto the 5th  letter of the alphabet which is E. Winners results for #120 are published in the post below. 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.  Challenge is for 2 weeks. 
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
Easel Card. 

Your 6 elements are  Emerald Green/Egyptian Blue/Eminence* /Embossing Folder/Edges + your Butterfly.
*According to the Spectrum wheel Eminence is a Dark Purple.
Here is my inspiration for you. 

My first card uses Easel card/Emerald Green/Eminence/Edges/Butterfly

Single Easel Card.

My second card uses Easel card/Eminence/Edges /Butterfly

Double Easel Card.

My third card uses Easel card/Egyptian Blue/Embossing Folder /Butterfly

Double Twisted Easel Card.

You can see more details of the cards here on my blog.
