#119 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with C for Centre Step.

We are  now onto the 3rd letter of the alphabet which is C. I am so pleased to see how many of you are coming to play with the new format. Thankyou. Winners results for #118 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. 
So we have a brand new wheel to spin and this yr we are going to go straight through the letters of the Alphabet starting with A. 
Come on in.

Lets Spin the Butterfly Wheel.
Each challenge will be a letter of the Alphabet with  a choice of 3 Colours and 2 Themes all beginning with the chosen letter.
New for this Yr. The 7th element of the wheel is a card shape.
(The diserning amongst you will notice that there is now an added page along the top under the Butterfly Banner called Card shapes.)
There will be a card shape for the letter being used for each challenge and I will be showing a tutorial on this page with hints and tips for making the cards. 
The card shape is not mandatory but if you do use it you will qualify for the top prize without having to combine all of the other 6 elements onto your card. You must of course  use your butterfly.   The shapes will all be easy ones, just a different way to either fold or cut your basic cardbase. 

If you don't want to use the card shape then 
You can either choose a Theme or a Colour from the wheel + Butterfly  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.

So lets get started.
The wheel is
Centre Step Card. 

Your 6 elements are  Cerise/Cadet Blue/Champagne/Circles/Candi + your Butterfly.
Here is my inspiration for you.

My first card uses Centre Step/Cerise/Cadet Blue/ Champagne /Butterfly

My second card uses Centre Step/Cerise/Circles/ Candi /Butterfly

My Third card uses Centre Step/Cerise/Champagne/Circles/ Candi /Butterfly

Hi Mrs A,
another really super challenge that gets our creative minds working.
As always your tutorials are excellent, and your designs are so inspirational too.
Love trying to include all 7 elements is quite a challenge, and good fun as well.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Lovely cards, Mrs. A. I esp love the colors and design of #2.

As usual, I am bringing up the rear with the last card in (or close to it!). I used a lovely die I won from you in my card and I see it is part of the prize for category #2 which my card falls in. If you wish, you can put my name in the hat for the lower prize....not sure if you do that or not. Thank you for another lovely challenge.

Hi Mrs A, when you say use the bi-fold + butterfly for the top prize do you mean the centerfold card, or the bi-fold in the card shapes. A little late to the party. HUgz
