#59 Butterflies + P is for Punches and/or Pink.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

Winners results for #58  are in the post below.
Please make sure you check as it could be you.
Unclaimed prizes go back into the pot and there have been quite a few!

Thankyou all so much for playing along. 

We are  half way through
the new set of letters and themes.
I've introduced  a new mix into the challenge too!!

 Each challenge will be a different letter of the Alphabet.
It will always be Butterflies  with the addition
of an item/theme beginning with a chosen letter.
Along with this letter will be a corresponding  colour.

You may choose to use just the letter /theme + butterfly
or use the colour + butterfly.
If you make your project 
using both the letter and the colour + butterfly
you will be eligible for going into a second draw to win 
an additional prize.
So that's 2 chances to win  on each challenge.  

 My Guest Designers
will choose which letter goes next and I will supply the theme

They will also be commenting on your entries.  

I'm  delighted to introduce you to my next Guest Designer

Please Welcome  back
Alice P.
(Winner #55)

I'm a 54 years old italian teacher (of primary school).
I live with my six(!) kitties in a little country hill near the sea.
I started my blog in May 2014. I have always played with papers, glue and colours, but I have known cardmaking/crafting world only recently, when I bought my first Big Shot and some dies... Such a fabulous invention is it!
I like learning and try new things and always look at the amazing works of the so many talented crafter in Blogland.
I like to recycle, not only for an ecological and economical factor, but also because everything can be re-invented. When I was a kid, my Grandmother taught me to throw away the less possible, because everything can be looked with different eyes and used in different ways. She made me small boats with hulls of walnut-tree, and dolls with a knotting handkerchief... She preserved the papers of my Easter eggs, and then I made collage and decorated boxes with them. I enjoyed those papers!
So, now I hate wasting...I'm a compulsive hoarder :D
I love so much all the colours, the "girly style", animals, flowers and nature and all the sweet things make me happy!
My English isn't very good, so I hope to haven't made too much mistakes in this my presentation... Lol
Hope you like my little works and I can't wait to see yours!

Oops, just realised you've said "no die cuts allowed". Sorry, I have included a die cut as well as my punched elements, does that mean I'm disqualified?
