#112 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with the Letter J.

Welcome back to the Butterfly Challenge. Thank you all for playing along with the last challenge.  Winners results for #111 are published in the post below. Make sure you check back as it could be you. Can I please ask that  Winners do 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.  Please state if you are only playing for fun so that it gives someone else the chance to win.  Challenge is for 2 weeks. 
This is the last Butterfly challenge for the year but the  Butterflies will be back on 2nd January 2019. As in previous yrs the Gnomes and Fairies will be taking over the challenge for the month of December.

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

#112 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with the letter J. 

Jade/Jazzberry Jam/Jasmine/Jewels/Jute/Joint/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.
Yes , Jazzberry Jam really does exist as a colour. 
The definition for joint is: the place where two or more things join, a hinge, a seam, to fit closely together. (Lets see what your imagination can come up with).

Here is my inspiration for you.
My first card uses all seven elements of the wheel.

Second card uses Jasmine/Jute/Butterfly.

Please go to my blog here  for how they were made.

So sorry I missed out last time round but very little creativing the last week or so, I ended up being rushed off with what turned into a hemiplegic migraine, only the second one of that variety and hoping to never have another. New regime of meds and keeping it all crossed they reduce my 'usual' migraines to less frequency.

Noted the new wheel and will really try to join in, was thinking yesterday if we are lucky there just might be a Fairy one soon !!

A delicate and classy wheel and two beautiful inspirations!
Sorry if I didn't enter the challenges in the last time, I haven't time for craft and only try to making something for Christmas... :(

Beautiful cards Mrs A. And you caught me on the hop - I used my last scrap of jute fabric a couple of weeks ago. But never mind, I have an absolute glut of jewels!
