#64 Butterflies + C is for Checkered and/or Cyan.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #63 are in the post below. Please make sure you check back as it could be you.  Unclaimed prizes go back into the pot and there have been a few! Thankyou all so much for continuing to play along.
We are now more than two thirds through the current set of letters and themes. A new mix has been entered 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 the 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 and colour.

I'm delighted to introduce you to my next Guest Designer.
Please welcome 
Ginny B
(winner of #59)

I am a wife of 42 years and a mother and grandmother, and loving every minute of it. My husband and I live with our sweet little kitty, who tells us (in no uncertain terms) when it is time to feed her! I love Jesus Christ and long to daily engage in His goodness and mercy. My passion is making beautiful handmade greeting cards. I started making them off and on several years ago, but started my blog in January of 2013. 

Every card is an experiment, trying out new techniques, new layouts new (and often unexpected) materials. Sometimes trying out new ideas leads to a technique that becomes a favorite, while sometimes it's totally a flop! But that is half the fun, isn't it--trying new things and seeing what works and what doesn't! Sometimes happy accidents are the most fun and fulfilling. What is the most fun for me is making 3-D cards which have not only color, but lots of texture; it seems that recipients of the cards love dimension. 

Valery Anne's challenge blog is always so much fun! I hope you will enjoy creating and entering this week's challenge.

Numbers 6:24-26 24 'May the Lord bless you and protect you. 25 May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. 26 May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.' NLT.

Congratulations Ginny!!! You came up with a great challenge.


Jane Willis said...

Congratulations to Ginny - your card is stunning! Mrs A, please ignore the apparent greenness of my card, it's all my camera's fault! The card is really a lovely deep turquoise cyan colour. The trouble is at this time of year all our photos end up being taken in artificial light and the colours never look true
