#147 Spin The Butterfly Wheel With D for Double Point Fold.

Winners results for #146  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.

Can I please also ask that if you are a winner that you do use your gift certificate.
All the companies that I have selected have a wide range of digital items for you to purchase and download so if you buy them you will incur no extra postal charges. 
It is upsetting for me to see gift certificates left sitting in my accounts with these companies. I do not receive these for free, I purchase them myself and I do not receive any freebies from them either for my own use.  I am therefore from now on putting a time limit on these certificates. Please use within 2 months of being emailed to you or loose them. I am sorry to have to make this stipulation but I just cannot keep on buying these certificates for them to remain unused.

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
Double Point Fold Card.

  Your  elements are:
Double Point Fold Card/ Diamonds/Delft Blue/ Damson/Dandelion
+your Butterfly.

n.b.   Diamonds can be either diamante or the shape.

Dandelion = Bright Yellow.

Please state the elements of Your Choice.

Here is my inspiration for you .

First card using:

Version I

 Double Point Fold /Diamante/Delft Blue /Butterfly.

Second  card using:

Version II

 Double Point Fold /Damson /Butterfly.

Third  card using:

Version III

 Double Point Fold /Diamante/Delft Blue/Dandelion  /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. 

Please Note.
Due to the current ongoing  situation with Covid 19
I have decided to still opt for sending out Gift Certificates instead of the usual prizes.

Bugaboo Digi Stamps are an on line Craft Company which also do Colouring Pages as well as some Digital Paper packs.
They have a huge range of Digi stamps to choose from by theme.
 You will be spoilt for choice .

Ages since I entered the Butterfly challenge, didn't manage the clever fold but will be trying it out soon I'm sure. Did manage diamonds and two colours though

I can't believe that I missed the deadline today! Was busy with several tasks and lost track of time. Bummer. Especially since I used the fold on this card. And I really like the way it turned out. So... even though I can't enter it into the challenge, I will post the link here in case you want to see it. (It is a Christmas Butterfly card... which is kind of unusual!)
You can find it here-
