#174 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with C for Cube Card.

The Butterflies are back with another card shape for you.

Hello, Mrs. A! This card shape is absolutely stunning! I don't think I'll attempt it but hopefully I will make something with the colours and checks!

Sandy said...

Your samples are absolutely stunning, Mrs. A. This isn't my typical range of colors, so it was a bit of a stretch.

Hello, Mrs. A! Just wanted to pop in to say I'm not going to be able to make your challenge this week, but I will look forward to the next one! I did, however, use your faux stepper tutorial to make the card on my blog today, and I gave you a shout-out. Thanks again - I know I will be making the faux stepper fold/shape again! Are you going to be able to join the Cat Lovers Hop this year? It's going on this week. I think you love cats, or is it your grandson who loves cats? Who can remember, my memory is so bad. Anyway, hope you're doing well and having a good day today!
