#132 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with P for Pop Up Card.

We are now onto the 16th letter of the alphabet which is P  and now over half way through the letters.  Winners results for #131  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
Pop Up  Card.

Your 6 elements are:
Peach/Pear /Periwinkle/Patterned paper/Pearls +your Butterfly.

  8. I haven't made the pop-up card but I made a concertina card - I went with peach and of course a butterfly. Still thinking about the pop-up!

  9. Pretty card, Mrs. A. I made a pop up box card and hope that will count as an entry. If not, I did use patterned paper with the butterflies and could play for that prize instead. :-) I made my card before I saw that yours is a different type of pop up.

  10. Yay! I made a pop-up! I hope you like it! Your tutorial was very easy to follow - I went with Version 2! Thank you for the wonderful inspiration!


Thank you so much for fluttering by today.
