#75 Butterflies + R is for Repeat and/or the colour Night sky.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #74 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.
I'm very pleased to announce the set of themes and colours for the coming year. I have thrown the letters up in the air this time round and the mix will be that the themes and colours will not be the same letter for each challenge. I have also sorted out some new prizes too.

I'm delighted to introduce you to my next Guest Designer.

Winner of #70)





Hey, y’all. What an honor it is to be chosen as a Guest Designer. I live in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. I’m married to my best friend, have children, grandchildren and the best pet in the world. His name is Woolfie the Bear. He’s a stuffed teddy bear and he knows he’s not real. I’ve been making cards for about 7 years.  When you get a chance, stop by my blog and have a look. If you can make it look prettier, please let me know as I am computer challenged.  http://bunnyscards1.blogspot.com


Bunny  has chosen 

the letter R for Repeat which has been teamed with N for the colour Night Sky)

For the purposes  of this challenge  for the theme of " Repeat"  I just need to see something on your card  repeated maybe as a pattern or more than one of.   The colour to use is "Night Sky". Again I will leave it to you to see your interpretation of night sky colours. It could be the colour of  twilight,  a glorious sunset or even the colour of a  moonless night.  Hope I have given you some inspiration .


You may choose to use just the letter/theme + butterfly or use the colour +butterfly.
If you make your project using both the theme  letter and the colour +butterfly you will be eligible for going into a second draw to win an additional prize.

Here is Bunny's  card for you.

(winner of #69)


Liz has been a previous Guest Designer here so welcome back Liz. 

Liz  has chosen 

the letter E for Edges which has been teamed with M for the colour Mint green.

So I would like to see fancy edges of some kind on your creation. It does not have to be made up of Butterflies just so long as I can see a distinctive edge. 

You may choose to use just the letter/theme + butterfly or use the colour +butterfly.
If you make your project using both the theme  letter and the colour +butterfly you will be eligible for going into a second draw to win an additional prize.

Here is Liz's  card for you.



Liz has used the idea of edges twice over. Around the edge of the butterfly circle and the pretty decorative edge trim on the base of the card. Please visit Liz on her blog Here for more details. 

Thankyou Liz for being my guest Designer for #74.

Please take the  Guest Designer badge from the side bar.


Here is my inspiration for you.

My first card uses a  Tattered Lace die to create the edges.

Here  I have used a Hunkydory precut set to create the edges. 

Please go to my blog Here for further details and photos.
