#169 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with F for Floating Strip Card.

The Butterflies are back with another card shape for you. 
Whilst I do have lots of new card shapes to try I don't have one to use for each letter of the Alphabet so this time round we are going Random and some letters will be used more than once and in any order!

 The next letter out of the Tea cup is 
the letter
Come on in.
Lets Spin the Butterfly Wheel.

Each challenge will be a letter of the Alphabet with a new  choice of 4 Colours , 1 Theme and a specified Card shape all beginning with the chosen letter.

As before I will be showing a tutorial for each of the card shapes.
 A link to the tutorial page is shown above under the banner heading. Just click on the Card Shapes tab and you will be taken to a drop down list of all the past and present card tutorials.

 You must of course use a butterfly on your entry but there are now two categories for you to choose from.

1.    Make any  card using at least 2 of the colours on the wheel +butterfly.  

     2.    Make a card using the Card Shape +any 2 of the colours + the theme +butterfly.  

There will be a prize for each category. 

 Please state in your post which part of the wheel you are using to play with.

There will be a special prize draw for using all elements on the wheel.

So lets get started.

The wheel is

Floating Strip Card.

If using card stock for your card then there is just the one fold to make
 if using a cardblank then none at all.
Can't complain at that!

These are the four colours to choose from. 

The theme is Flowers.

Please state the elements of Your Choice.

Here is my inspiration for you.
