#136 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with S for Step Block Card.

We are now onto the 19th letter of the alphabet which is S. Winners results for #135  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

  Your 6 elements are:

Fabulous creations Mrs A! xx

I couldn't remember how to link the same post to two different photos so I wrote two different posts as I tried both your versions using the same papers. I'd never tried either shape before but they were both much more straightforward than they look, thanks to your excellent tutorials.

Oh, my...Mrs. A, your step fold cards are incredible! So impressive and beautiful. I am sneaking in here in crunch time with some sage green cards. I was so excited to pull some fun sage green goodies out of my Butterfly Box that you had sent me a long time ago. So much fun to use them!! Thank you again for those crafty goodies. I hope you like what I did with them. Thank you for another lovely challenge!!
