#78 Butterflies + D is for Decoupage and/or the colour Gold.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #77 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.
I'm very pleased to announce the set of themes and colours for the coming year. I have thrown the letters up in the air this time round and the mix will be that the themes and colours will not be the same letter for each challenge. I have also sorted out some new prizes too.

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

Donna T. 
(winner of #74)

Hi, my name is Donna and I am excited to be Guest Designer at the Butterfly Challenge.   I live in Missouri, USA with my husband  and we have two grown sons.   I have been crafting since I was a child and got hooked on stamping 16 years ago and have gone full force since then.  I began blogging about 15 years ago and the most exciting part of blogging is that I have made friends all over the world.  I would enjoy having you stop by my blog I will enjoy returning the visit:

Donna  has chosen 

the letter D for Decoupage which has been teamed with G for the colour of Gold

So I would like to see  an example of decoupage however small on your projects.  Put your sunglasses on and find that gold lurking in your stash be it embossing powders, charms,  gems, ribbon , gold stickers  and don't forget your butterfly/ies.

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

Here is Donna's card for you.

Congratulations to Donna on her Guest designer spot. Beautiful cards from you both. I rarely use decoupage or gold, so this challenge will take my out of my comfort zone!
