#171 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with S for Spanner Panel 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


Spanner Panel Card.
(so called as a strip of card spans between the 2 side panels thus joining them together)

A deceptively easy card which just takes 2 cuts to make it.
It might look complex but 
Trust me it is not!!!

These are the four colours to choose from. 

The theme is  Stripes.

Please state the elements of Your Choice.

Hi Mrs. A, glad to see you again on blogland and with a new challenge too! Hope you are well now!
Fabulous cards for inspiration, and the folding seems easy and quick to do!

Good to see you back. Hope everything went well.
I assume above the bottom prize photo that it should read "Spanner Panel Card" rather than Arrow Fold card.
This looks like a nice easy one to do - hopefully it proves to be.

Hello, Mrs. A! I am very happy to see you and your challenges again! I missed you! Although I wasn't brave enough to try the spanner card, I just linked up a treat bag using three of the colours, along with my butterfly. I read in the rules that items other than cards are permitted so I went for it! Thanks for inspiring, and I hope you are doing okay healthwise. Sending hugs and well wishes from Canada.
