#177 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with D for Double Slider Card.

Welcome to another year of challenges in the butterfly garden. 
The Butterflies are back with a fresh round of card shapes for you. 
Whilst I do have lots of different shapes to try I don't necessarily have one to use for each letter of the Alphabet so I am choosing them randomly and some letters will be used more than once and in any order!

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

Each challenge will be a letter of the Alphabet with a 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 two categories for you to choose from.

1.    Make any style card/project 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  the elements from the wheel.

So lets get started.

The wheel is



Double Slider Card.

These are the four colours to choose from. 

The theme is  Die cut.

Please state the elements of Your Choice.

Here is my inspiration card for you.
Using from the wheel
Double Slider card/Die Cut/Dairy Cream/Denim/ Dandelion/Butterfly.

There are many ways of making this card but I like this version as it stands up for display.
Here is the card with the slider element on show. Just pull the ribbon tab to display. 


Prizes for this year are going to be a different format.
 We are all now struggling with rising living costs and whilst it is always nice to receive a new stamp we still need to purchase for ourselves the fundamentals of our crafting hobby
so I have decided that the prizes will be a selection of just those items that we use on a daily basis and always running out of. 
i.e. D.S tape, cardstock, washi tape,ribbon, glue pens, stickers,gDems,enamel dots, 3D pads, tape runners  etc.
(The Butterfly Prize Box is now fully stocked with a selection of the above items)

I will include one fun item that can be used in your craft room just for you. 

Please be sure to read all the rules on the tab above.

Enter your creations in Mr Linky below.
Please also state if you are only playing for fun.

Happy crafting and see you soon.

This challenge will be  running for 3 weeks.
Challenge will therefore end 

Tuesday 14th Feb 8pm (GMT)

this is a great shape card. I used two now for cards that were needed for newborn babies. The only issue I have is that the card doesn't "work" if I just use a strip on one side. Any idea why this happens?
