#67 butterflies + N is for Not Square and/or Navy

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #66 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 three quarters of the way 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 
 Mervi (Loreal Blondi)
(winner of #61)

My name is Mervi Väisänen and I live in Finland. Because I'm blond my Blog name is Loreal Blondi. For me it's an omen and I think that's why my life is so happy!

Like many of  you, I can say too that I have made cards all of my life! But nowadays I have plenty of time to do it – when ever I like! Not only to myself and challenges, which are so great, but also to relatives and friends who I know love to get some handmade cards now and then.

For me it's more than making cards - it's almost way of living :) And it's fun!

Mervi has chosen

# 67 Butterflies + N is for Not Square
with the additional option of N is for the colour Navy.
Your card/project can have lots of  other colour just at long as you have used navy somewhere for me
and I would like to see a shaped card .No square cards allowed.

Here is Mervi's card for you.

I love the embossed background and just take a look
at that gorgeous butterfly!!
