#145 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with B for Bow Fronted Card.

We have now started the new round of letters of the alphabet . Winners results for #144  are 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.

Can I please also ask that if you are a winner that you do use your gift certificate.
All the companies that I have selected have a wide range of digital items for you to purchase and download so if you buy them you will incur no extra postal charges. 
It is upsetting for me to see gift certificates left sitting in my accounts with these companies. I do not receive these for free, I purchase them myself and I do not receive any freebies from them either for my own use.  I am therefore from now on putting a time limit on these certificates. Please use within 2 months of being emailed to you or loose them. I am sorry to have to make this stipulation but I just cannot keep on buying these certificates for them to remain unused. 


Come on in.
Lets Spin the Butterfly Wheel.
Each challenge will be a letter of the Alphabet with  a choice of 3 Colours , 1 Theme and a specified  Card shape  all beginning with the chosen letter.

(The discerning amongst you will notice that there is an added page along the top under the Butterfly Banner called Card shapes.)
 I will be showing a link to a tutorial on this page with hints and tips for making the cards so just look under the letter being used for each challenge. 

The card shape is not mandatory but if you do use it you will qualify for the top prize. You must of course use your butterfly and the other elements.  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
B
and 
Bow Fronted Card.




  Your  elements are:
Bow Front Card/ Buttons (real or faux)/Beau Blue/ Buttermilk/Burgundy
+your Butterfly.


N.b.  Beau Blue  = A hint of azure.
         

Please state the elements of Your Choice.
