#127 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with K for Kinetic Card.

We are  now onto the 11th letter of the alphabet which is K. Winners results for #126  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 challenge is running for 2wks.

      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
Kinetic Card.

N.b.  Kinetic card means a card involving a moving part.
I have made a tutorial showing how to make a very simple moving card. 
Please see card shapes tag above.

Your 6 elements are Key Lime /Kobe/Kobi/Kraft/Knots+your Butterfly.

N.b Kobe = Dark Burgundy
       Kobi = Pink Lavender
BTW. These colours really do exist and are not made up by me!

Here is my inspiration for you. 
Card uses Kinetic card/Key lime/Kobe/Kobi/Butterfly.
Card slightly open.
Card  half open.
Card fully open.

You can see more details of the card here on my blog.
Also check out the Card shapes Tab at top of page  to see how to make this very simple Kinetic  Card.
