#162 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with T for Tower Flap Card.

The Butterflies are Back for another challenge.
The Winners  for #161 have been published in post below this one. 

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

That is such an amazing fold. I can't wait to see what people do with it. I went a little easier, but still a bit of a stretch for me. Thank you as always for your fun challenge.

I am totally loving the colors on your wheel, Mrs. A!! Lavender and pink....pure bliss.
Your tower card is completely astounding. Wow...just wow. The design is impressive enough, but with those pretty papers, too. Just spectacular.
I am so glad to be able to participate in your challenge this time...even though my card is one from a little while ago, but never blogged. Thank you so much for your wonderful challenges....they are always a joy!!
Take care and have a wonderful day.
