#129 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with M for Magic Window Card.

We are  now onto the 13th letter of the alphabet which is and now half way through  the letters.  Winners results for #128  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 will be running for 4 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
Magic Window Card.

Your 6 elements are Magnolia/Mandarin/Mint/Marker Pens/Metal Charm +your Butterfly.

Here is my inspiration for you.

Thanks for another fun challenge. I made a card for the previous one but missed the deadline so will be sure to keep track this time! I'm not sure what color Magnolia is, so can you please explain it to us? I tried looking it up but there are more than one definitions of what that color might be. Thanks!

KathyA. said...

Ooooh. I haven't made one of these cards is many years. I do remember that it wasn't hard to do... so count me in! (And thanks for all the work you put into making this fun challenge. I can't image the research that goes into selecting the colors and technique... and then developing the tutorial. Thanks for that, Mrs A!)

Very creative input, and love you sweet and fun csrd!!!

Suzanne H said...

I never made this card fold before and it really wasn't too difficult. I had to cut my window bigger so the sentiment would show but that was just a couple of snips with scissors. Thanks for the great tutorials.

Who doesn't love an interactive card... the magic window is really cool, happy to make one and play along...Robyn

I'm going to have a shot at that magic window technique - but whether it will be in time for this challenge is another matter! I really wanted to bring out my huge butterfly stamp because I knew this time's colours would be perfect for the background

KT Fit Kitty said...

Hello, Mrs. A! Yay - I'm joining your challenge this time! Thanks so much for the inspiration! Love the mandarin colour and that's what I've gone with. Your samples are gorgeous as always! I'm not brave enough to try the Magic Window yet but it's very impressive! Thank you for the tutorial and for the challenge! Wishing you a wonderful day!

Susan Renshaw said...

Mrs A....You are just a fountain of fascinating fancy folds!! What a fun design to feature. Your tutorials are so well done, also. I appreciate the dimensions that you include. I doubt I will get to try this one out, but it looks like something even I could do!! Love the colors on the wheel this time around. Thanks for another thoroughly enjoyable challenge.
