#69 Butterflies +Z is for Zero and/or Zucchini

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. The Butterflies have now rested their wings and are fluttering to go. Winners results for #68 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 back 
Tina Z.
(winner of #62.)

Hi. I am Tina and I live in Slovenia, a country well known for its stunning nature. I have been married to my high school sweetheart and we have a 5 year old daughter and two sons (4 and 1,5 year old). I started card making in 2010 when my husband bought me a green Cuttlebug J.  I didn't know a hobby could be so addictive … So I created my blog to share my love of crafting and to enter challenges, which inspire my  crafting.
Both decisions – to start crafting and to start blogging  - are among the best in my life, it is so inspiring. I don’t have any specific ‘crafter style’,  I just love playing with papers and trying different styles and techniques, e.g. CAS, vintage, bokeh, smooshing, water coloring …
You can find more on my blog ( The name incorporates my passion for environment (»tree«) and card making (»bug« is short for my green Cuttlebug)
I am so happy to be a Guest Designer at Butterfly challenge – butterfly dies were among the first dies I bought. Thank you Mrs A.!

Tina  has chosen

# 69 Butterflies +  Z is for Zero
with the additional option of Z is for the colour Zucchini.

(The definition for Zucchini as a colour is hues of yellow through to hues of green
and I will accept either or both colour ranges.)
Your Zero can be a nought on your project to represent a special birthday or an event maybe. 

Here is Tina's card for you.
