140 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with W for Waterfall Card.

We are now onto the 23rd letter of the alphabet which is W. Not many letters left to get to the end. Winners results for #139  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
Waterfall  Card.

  Your 6 elements are:
Waterfall Card/ Wisteria/Wild Blue /Wheat/Washi Tape/Wood Effect 
+your Butterfly.

N.B. Wood effect    = How you interpret is up to you.
i.e Wood grain stamp, wood effect d.p. or wooden embellishment.  

Here is my inspiration for you using:

First card.
 Waterfall Card /Wisteria/ Wild Blue/ Butterfly.

Second card.
 Waterfall Card /Wisteria/ Wild Blue/ Wheat/Washi Tape/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.

Haven't made one of these cards for years. Will try to find time to give it a try. And I've never seen this company before... but I'm in LOVE with the cute Digi! Am thinking I need to do a little shopping, and maybe prepare a wish list, too?! Thanks so much for the opportunity!

Things have been pretty hectic at my house with both my kids being home schooled by me now. I'm lucky enough that my husband is able to work from home, and avoid that long commute during this time. I even managed to make a couple of cards over the weekend, and pulled out some little butterfly dies to enter the challenge. Hope you had a relaxed Easter and are staying safe Mrs. A!

I just seem to have lost my creative spark ever since the coronavirus hit but your challenge got it started again, at least long enough for me to make some Easter cards! Butterflies always make me think of springtime and Easter. Thank you for continuing to inspire me.

Only one element from me this time, the mojo is behaving very oddly in these strange times.
