#70 Butterflies + J is for Jewels and/or Jade

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.  Winners results for #69 are in the post below. Please make sure you check back as it could be you.  Unclaimed prizes go back into the pot and there have been a few! Thankyou all so much for continuing to play along.
We are now over  three quarters of the way through the current set of letters and themes. A new mix has been entered into the challenge too!!

 Each challenge will be a different letter of the Alphabet. It will always be Butterflies with the addition of an item/theme beginning with a chosen letter. Along with the letter will be a corresponding colour.
You may choose to use just the letter/theme + butterfly or use the colour +butterfly.
If you make your project using both the letter and the colour +butterfly you will be eligible for going into a second draw to win an additional prize. So that's 2 chances to win on each challenge.
My Guest Designers will choose which letter goes next and I will supply the theme and colour.

I'm delighted to introduce you to my next Guest Designer.
Please welcome 
(winner of #63.)

That smile is genuine too as I have met Chris in person
and she really is a lovely lady.

"Hello, My name is Chris and I have been crafting for a few years now but still feel like quite a novice.  I mostly do cardmaking and don't have a particular style, I just do whatever I feel like. I enjoy entering challenges as they make me think and often take me out of my comfort zone.  Blogland is a lovely place to be.  I have made so many friends and get so much inspiration from all the talented crafters out there.  Thank you Mrs A for inviting me to be Guest Designer on your fabulous Challenge Blog - I love butterflies, well who doesn't! "

Chris  has chosen

# 70 Butterflies + J  is for Jewels
with the additional option of J is for the colour Jade.

The definition for Jade is :
(Jade is an ornamental rock. The higher the iron content the greener the colour)

So come on ladies, get those jewels out of the safe and polished up ready to use!

Here is Chris's card for you.

The photo doesn't do this card justice.
Please  go  over to Chris's blog to see how this beautiful
card has been made.

Thankyou Chris  for being my guest Designer for #70.

Please take the new Guest Designer badge from the side bar.

Here is my inspiration for you.

Please go to my  Blog Here   for full explanation of how the cards were made.

The Winner may choose one item from the following prizes.

Hi Mrs A,
Congrats to Chris on her GD spot and isn't her card a super colour and design, and that Butterfly is gorgeous.
Your card is very super also and I love the purple with the jade, and of course the wonderful flower image also.
Thank you for another great challenge theme.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

I forgot to say that one of my cards is light green, and I hope that counts for Jade. Thanks.
