#144 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with A for Accordion Fold Card.

All prize winners from #142  have had their gift certificates sent out to them. Please check your in boxes/spam/junk emails for an email. If you think you should have received and haven't please let me know.

We have now completed the last letter of the alphabet which was Z. Winners results for #143  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.

As no one has stated differently I am taking it everyone is happy to continue  with playing with the different letters of the alphabet to choose a themed card shape!!!! 

Please Note.
I have  decided to let this challenge run for 4 weeks.
Challenge will therefore end on Tuesday 28th  of July.

I have also added a further 2 Versions of the Accordion  shape to the card shapes tab above. Please check them out.  

Also unliminted entries for this challenge.

Come on in.
Lets Spin the Butterfly Wheel.
Each challenge will be a letter of the Alphabet with  a choice of 3 Colours , 1 Theme and a specified  Card shape  all beginning with the chosen letter.

(The discerning amongst you will notice that there is an added page along the top under the Butterfly Banner called Card shapes.)
 I will be showing a link to a tutorial on this page with hints and tips for making the cards so just look under the letter being used for each challenge. 

The card shape is not mandatory but if you do use it you will qualify for the top prize. You must of course use your butterfly and the other elements.  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
Accordion Style Card.
(I am defining Accordion as having more than 3 folds to it)

  Your  elements are:

+your Butterfly.

N.b.  Apple blossom  = Light pink.
