#114 Spin The Wheel with the Letter I.

Happy New Year to you all and welcome back to the Butterfly challenge.
Thank you all for playing along with the last challenge.  Winners results for #113 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

#114 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with the letter I. 

Imperial Purple/Iceburg/Ivory/Invitation/Include a Die Cut/Image can be Digi or a Stamp/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 Ivory/ Invitation/ Image (stamp) and Butterfly

Second card uses Imperial Purple/Ivory/Butterfly.

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

My thumbnail has a serious dose of wishy-washiness! I think it's because I took the photos yesterday when everywhere was so dark and gloomy I had to use electric lighting and flash. If only the weather had been like it is today with lovely bright sunshine!

Okay this really is a first ... three entries Mrs A. I’m entering the use all six elements challenge only. Love that prize and had to try for it, plus loved the colours too. The invited but nearly had me stumped as don’t have invited in stamp or die, but being a calligrapher I really had no excuse. Mind you hate my hand penwork on cards unless using my proper pens and wasn’t getting them out. Used white gel pen instead! 😉
Thanks for the grand challenge with wonderful prizes too!
