#99 Challenge Extension.

Due to severe disruption to my computer and my internet connection caused by  being hacked not once but twice to the same account in the space of 10 days my  poor computer has had to have it insides scrubbed and disinfected with a Malware program and I only got back on line late last night . I have therefore reset #99 to run for a further 2 weeks in order for me to catch up. Whilst I do  have the cards and the prizes ready for the next challenge, as it is a milestone number (#100) I did not want to rush getting the post and pictures up in a hurry  plus I also need to get all links to previous winners and Guest Designers blogs removed in order to comply with the new privacy legislation rules  coming into play at the end of May.
Please continue to play along with the current challenge which is below this post and enter your cards in Mr Linky.
Thankyou for your understanding .
#99 will close on Tuesday 8th May.
#100 will now  open on Wednesday 9th May. There will be a bumper number of prizes for this special edition.

#99 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with the Letter D.

Welcome back to the new style/format Butterfly Challenge. Thank you all for playing along  with the last challenge. There were 40 entries    Winners results for #98 are  published  in the post below. Make sure you check back as it could be you. Only two prizes were claimed and sent out on the last challenge. Can I please ask that Winners acknowledge their prize in the comments on the Winners post as well as emailing their details to me. This way I will know to expect an email. Sadly I had one unclaimed prize winner notify me that she had neither heard from me nor been sent  her prize but I had never received her original email. (This has since been rectified and prize posted.)  Please state if you are only playing for fun so that it gives someone else the chance to win.  There are 3 prizes for this challenge again.
Come on in.

Lets Spin the Butterfly Wheel.

Each challenge will still be a letter of the Alphabet but there will  now be a choice of 3 Colours and 3 Themes all beginning with the chosen letter.
You must use your butterfly/ies on your creation, 
then you can either choose a Theme or a Colour from the wheel  to be entered  for the 1st Prize.
If you use a Butterfly + a Theme + a Colour from the wheel then 
you  will  be entered into the 2nd Prize. 
Please state in your post which part of the wheel you are using to play with.
New for this Yr.
If you manage to use all 7 elements of the wheel then you will be entered into a 3rd Prize.

So lets get started.
The wheel for this challenge is

#99 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with the letter D. 

Dark Salmon/Denim Blue/Dirt/Diecut/Digi Image/Dimension/ Butterfly.
 I have used  Wikipedia's  excellent site for obtaining most of the colours chosen for the wheels. I then went through all my Promarkers,Marvey le PlumeII, Graph'it and Spectrum Noir pens to find the nearest colour match for me to use.
Below is the pen colours I found nearest and have used for my cards. Hope this helps.

Here is my inspiration for you.
