#125 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with I for Impossible card.

We are  now onto the 9th letter of the alphabet which is I. Winners results for #124  are 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.
  Please note that this Challenge is now back to the  normal 2 wks.

      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 discerning 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
Impossible Card.
Your 6 elements are Imperial Red /Iceberg/Inchworm/Inks/Images+ your Butterfly.

n.b Inworm = the colour of grass.
Iceberg =  pale blue/grey.

Images can be either digi or stamp
Inks. Use Distress inks or Marker pens.

Here is my inspiration for you. 

1st card using version I
Card uses Impossible card/Image/Inks/Iceberg/Inchworm/Butterfly.

2nd card using version II
Card uses Impossible card/Image/Inks/Imperial red/Iceberg/Inchworm/Butterfly.

You can see more details of the cards here on my blog.

Thanks for the new challenge Mrs A. Just a question - The Top Prize refers to using the Gate Fold Card Element - should this be the Impossible Card element?

Hi Mrs. A! When I looked at the directions for this, of course I got confused with the 'twist' portion … but it was the easiest part of the whole process! lol This was a fun card to make and I hope to make another! Yours are beautiful and were a great help & inspiration for trying this new fold (for me).
