#188 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with Going Monochromatic.

The Butterfly wheel is back albeit in a slightly curtailed version. 
I am not fully back up to speed yet but am getting there.  So we are going Monochromatic for this challenge. You have 5 colours to choose from on the wheel below. We are revisiting the Joy fold card shape as it lends itself perfectly for using shades of all one colour on the various folds used on the card.
So just pick one colour and create a Joy fold card using shades of your selected colour plus lace edging and of course your butterflies. 
If you don't want to make a joy fold card then that's ok just enter a card of your choice still using monochrome as your theme though  and your butterflies. 
Lets Spin the Butterfly Wheel.

Lace edging can be Real or Faux.
On my example I have used lace dies and white lace is allowed.

Here are my inspiration cards for you.

I have chosen to use shades of Green from the wheel. 

Card 1. Joy Fold Card. 

You will find instructions for making the Joy fold card (Version 1) which is the card I have made here.  
 A link to the tutorial page is shown  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.

Card 2.

You can see more details of the cards over on my blog Here.

There will be a prize for each category. 

I will include  a 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 7th Nov 8pm (GMT) .

The Prize winners are as follows.

As there were 29 entries and it was rather a tight squeeze in the butterfly mug I
decided to make it more even and to delve into the mug twice by dividing the numbers up 1 - 15 and then 16 - 29.

1st Winner from 1 - 15
