#163 Spin The Butterfly Wheel With V for Vertical Window Card

The Butterflies are Back for another challenge.
The Winners  for #162 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
Vertical Window Card.

Your 6  elements are:
Vertical Window Card/Vellum paper /Venetian Red/Vanilla/Vega Gold
+your Butterfly.

N.b.  Venetian Red   = Deep Red.
Vanilla = Light Cream.
Vegas Gold  = Burnished Gold. .

Please state the elements of Your Choice.

I have really pushed my boat out on using these colours
but if I don't push myself I can't expect to push yours!!
So here goes.

 My inspiration for you.

Card 1.
Using all six elements from the wheel. 

Card 2.
Using all six elements from the wheel. 

The Red on these two cards for some reason is showing more pink but they are indeed Red 
You can see more details of the cards here on my blog.
Also the tutorial for making this style is on the Card shape Page at the top under the banner header.

I had wanted to try the vertical window element, but time just got away from me. I did, however, enter two cards in the meantime but will have to bookmark this to try later. Thank you for another creative challenge and beautiful card samples.
