Thank you all for playing along with the last challenge.  Winners results for #114 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. 
Just a few more spins of the current wheel left to do and then a New Challenge Wheel will start in February when the challenge will be entering it's Sixth Year. 


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

#115 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with the letter Y. 


Yale Blue/Yew/Yellow/Your Choice/Yarn /You, in the sentiment/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.

Here is my inspiration for you.

My first card uses all Seven elements.
I chose to do (Stitching) as my 'Your Choice'




My second card uses Yale Blue and Butterfly
