#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.

Tina  has made a Birthday card for a special 10yr old.

Congrats Tina for your GD! Lovely card with the acetate panel, you and Mrs A. are so talented at using this, your cards are both beautiful!
... Just a note: when I read "Zucchini" I have been stunned. In Italy zucchini are a veggie! :D
But the colours are the same :)
Happy New Year to all

Wonderful theme! At first I was thinking, "Zucchini???? Who in the world would have a zucchini stamp???" Then I realized it was the color, not the veg!! Ha.

Your cards are fabulous and so is the inspiration from your Guest Designer!!! Thank you for this lovely challenge.

I am glad you told us what colour to use for Zucchini. I didn't fancy just a dark green which is what it means to me.It is good to be back crafting again. Long may the butterflies keep flying! Kate x

Hi Mrs A,
congrats to Tina on her GD spot.
Her card is brilliant as is yours, and such a great example for us to follow.
I must admit I did struggle with this colour, so I hope my card is okay.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

I just wanted to say that the pins in the tops of brushos are so you can shake a little out at a time. You don't need to remove the lid which can result in a right old mess and lots of shouting!
