#130 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with N for Never Ending Card.

We are  now onto the 14th letter of the alphabet which is N  and now over  half way through the letters.  Winners results for #129  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 back to it's normal 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
N
and 
Never Ending Card.

Now, before I have you all running for the hills
I thought long and hard about choosing this card shape
but having looked at several different tutorials some overly complicated,  decided it really only boiled down to using just

 4 pieces of card stock  6" x 3"
and 
Sticky Tape.
It really is that simple!!
Check out my tutorial page above.
  




Your 6 elements are:
Nautical Blue/New York Pink /Napa Red/Narrow edges/ News Print +your Butterfly.

N.B. New York Pink = Dark Pink.
Napa Red is a Dark Burgundy Wine colour
from the Napa Valley wine region.

Here is my inspiration for you. 
Card uses:
 Never Ending card/ Narrow edges/ New print/ Napa Red/ New York Pink /Butterfly.



This is the front of the card.
Below is the the 2nd section that opens up from the first .
