#164 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with W for Windmill Style Card.

The Butterflies are back for the last challenge of this year.
They will be here again in January 2022 with a brand new Alphabet
and card shapes to try out. 
The Winners  for #163 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.

Sorry I've not managed an entry for ages - made it for the final one of the year and with only the wisteria missing from my card.

I'd like to have a go at a windmill card. They look very effective and not too tricky. I do like all the patterned paper you've used. Hope all is well, I'm glad to be able to pop in and I hope I'll be back before long. xxx

Hello, Mrs. A! I had to check to see what's been going on with the butterflies and it looks like I'm missing out on a gorgeous style of card! These cards are both intriguing so I'm going to check out your tutorial and if it looks doable, I'll see what I can come up with. According to the linky, I still have a week to get something together! Might be a nice break from the gingerbread cards!

I did it! I just linked up my Windmill-style card - thank you for the inspiration! I went with W for Windmill and W for Wine. I guess I have W for Words too!
