#82 Butterflies + M is for Matching pairs and/or the colour of Orange peel

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #81 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.
Well we are half way through this years themes already!  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 welcome back my next Guest Designer.

Kate P.
 (Winner of #72)

Hi. I was delighted to be invited as Guest Designer for the Butterfly Challenge #82 . I am married with five sons, seven grandchildren, five of them boys, and two great-grandsons. But since 2009, Chris and I have lived in Andalucia, S.Spain, and our family consists of three dogs and four cats, all rescued animals. I have been crafting in one way or another all my life, but since my retirement in 2007 it has become my main hobby. I started in papercraft with stamping and then was so excited to discover heat embossing! Now I love incorporating die cutting, and making my own cut-outs with my Silhouette Cameo machine. I mostly make cards for personal use, but also dabble in scrapbooking, knitting, crochet, lace-making, and also photography. I follow online tutorials to improve my skills and I love to learn about new materials and techniques on the internet, and usually try them at least once. So I am looking forward to seeing what techniques you have used for this challenge.

Kate has chosen

the letter M for Matching Pairs  which has been teamed with O for the colour of Orange peel.

So I would like to see matching pairs of some description.  It can be in the embellishments or a stamped image. Please state what your matching pair/s are.

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 Kate's card for you.

Kate has chosen two matching Butterflies for her embellishment.

Please visit Kate  on her blog  Here for more details.
Thankyou  Kate  for being my Guest Designer for #82.

Please take the  Guest Designer badge from the side bar.

Hi Val
Made it eventually.
Having trouble linking, my computer is slow and not very obedient.
Anyway here is a butterfly.
It's a good idea to have this challenge as it highlights the plight of butterflies perhaps.
