#137 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with T for Tunnel Card

We are now onto the 20th letter of the alphabet which is T. Winners results for #136  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
Tunnel  Card.

  Your 6 elements are:
Thistle/Tea Rose /Teal/Twine/Two of something  +your Butterfly.

N.B. Thistle    =  Pale Mauve.
Tea Rose    =  Pale Pink.
Two of Something  = other than two butterflies.

Here is my inspiration for you using:

First card.
 Tunnel  Card V 1 card / Teal/Tea Rose/Twine/Two of something./Butterfly.

Second card.
 Tunnel Card V2 Card/ Tea Rose/Thistle/Butterfly.

Third card.
 Tunnel Card V3 Card/ Teal/Twine /Butterfly.

You can see more details of the cards here on my blog.
Also tutorials are on the Card shape Page at the top under the banner header.

I finally made it back to enter one of your fun challenges! Thanks so much for stimulating us into making those butterfly cards! Your card is just lovely with the frame matching the butterfly and the clever twine frame too! Very unique and pretty!

Oh no Mrs A, that rotten spammer has hit you too, I’ve had to put on moderation after first day of my post, they drove me nuts, more than one I suspect. They’ve discovered craft blogs as good free publicity avenues!

Well, don’t die of shock, but am joining over, have had butterfly card before but no other element to match!
This time, have two colours really as didn’t realise Thistle was mauve, till just reread your post, and used pale mauve on my flowers base with Tombows the layered shades up and down, also added teal right corners of inside of some of leaves, love water colour pens like Tombows for this work, but have just had Birthday so have new set of watercolour paints I can’t wait to see what they’re like too.

Beautiful DT work there, you’re very imaginative in your card designs, I get your posts and must confess I’ve not heard of most of them. Hope that your shoulder isn’t too bad, was pleased to read Dis is getting better.
Thanks for being a blessing, and may God bless you too.
Hugs, Shaz in Oz.x 😊

I wasn't quite up to trying the fancy tunnel card fold but the spring weather motivated me to pull out some butterfly stamps and dies this time around.
