#88 Butterflies + Z is for Zodiac and/or the colour Buttermilk

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #87 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 nearing the end of  this year's themes. Where has all the time gone!  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  my next Guest Designer.

 (winner of #84)

Hi I’m Lindsey and am happily fluttering by to join the latest Butterfly Challenge.  In-between my day job working in a school I indulge my passion for making cards and I also run regular craft clubs (some for children and some for adults) which allows me to play with lots of different artistic mediums and techniques. I joined the Uniko Design Team in January 2016.  I’m a regular participant in many card-making challenges in Blogland and can also be found at stamping shows with the Uniko team if you want to pop by and say hello!

Lindsey   has chosen 

the letter Z for Zodiac which has been teamed with B for the colour Buttermilk.

Now I'm  certainly not advocating that you should go out and buy any stamps/dies etc to accommodate the theme so just take a minute or two and take stock of what you already have in your stash and really think outside of the box.

With twelve signs to choose from you could pick
Libra -  Scales  (or even just use a balanced design)
Gemini -  Twins (so two of something on your card)
Sagittarius (Love or arrows)
Virgo  (A woman)
Aquarius ( jug or water with flowers)
Pisces, Scorpio, Cancer can be  depicted by something of a fish/water scene.
Leo (lion), Aries (ram/ sheep), Capricorn (goat), Taurus (bull)
or even just stars/world for the universe.

Don't forget the butterfly though.

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.
Please state in your post which sign of the Zodiac you have used.

Here  is Lindsey's card for you.

Lindsey chose to use Stars for the Universe along with Buttermilk.

Please pop over to Lindsey's blog for more information on how her card was made.

Ooh clever use of Leo the lion and weighing scales in your cards Mrs A! Love the fun element with the ideas too!

Welcome to Lindsey, her card is so lovely and sweet! I'm stunned by yours, such big creativity you have, both your creations are so much fun and adorable!

Liz said...

Congratulations to Lindsey on her GD spot and what a beautiful card she's made for inspiration. I've just seen your two lovely cards on your blog, Mrs A, and the second one still makes me smile. I'll have to get my thinking cap on for this challenge. I thought I'd go for my own zodiac sign, but I think a scorpion might frighten the butterfly away! ;-) xx

Your inspiration is awesome thank you, but afraid I admitted defeat with the Zodiac and went for the 'soft' option.

A bit stumped by the Zodiac (mojo missing) but did manage the buttermilk
