#170 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with A for Arrow Fold 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.

I love the shape of the card and will keep in in mind. My card is in mono colors, but next time I will try to use some items of the wheel!
