#135 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with R for Rocker Card.

We are now onto the 18th letter of the alphabet which is R. Winners results for #134  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.

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
Rocker  Card.

  Your 6 elements are:
Riffle Green/Raspberry /Rajah/Ribbon/Raised Up +your Butterfly.

N.B. Rajah = Light orange colour
Raised Up = raised on 3D pads to give dimension.

Here is my inspiration for you using:

First card.
 Rocker Card/ Raspberry/Riffle green/Rajah/Raised Up/Butterfly.

Second card.
 Rocker Card/ Raspberry/Riffle green/Rajah/Raised Up/Ribbon/Butterfly.

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

Love rocker cards. Really need to try and join the fun. Your stepped rocker is awesome Mrs A. Hugz

I've NEVER managed to make a rocker card that's been stable, so I've gone for some of the other elements instead.

Your cards are so unique and fun. I've seen this type of card a couple times; it looks intimidating! My card is playing for 2nd prize (theme & color). And a since thank you for the chance. ;-)

I had my step card base on my desk for a week before I decided how to decorate it and I'm rapt with the result....your butterfly challenge and shaped cards are such fun and a real challenge to try and combine different 'letter' elements... thanks for hosting them ValeryAnne - have a happy day, Robyn
