#87 Butterflies + V is for Vertical and/or the colour Damson

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #86 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.
Well we are more than half way through this year's themes already!  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 welcome  my next Guest Designer.

(Winner of #83)

I’ve always had an interest in many different crafts including knitting, crochet, embroidery, dressmaking in the early days and moving into all aspects of card making and paper craft over the years but still carrying on with the original interests so plenty to keep me occupied.  I guess the phrase ‘Jack of all trades and master of none’ springs to mind but I love to be in a position to chop and change, doing different things as the mood takes me and find that whatever I decide to pick up is on the whole relaxing and therapeutic.  Time certainly flies when my hands, and brain, are kept busy.  I enjoy taking part in challenges because they make me think and I often design things in my head to fit the themes while I’m out and about walking or riding on the bus to go shopping.  Mind you they don’t always work when I try them at home but are OK most of the time.

Val   has chosen 

the letter V for Vertical which has been teamed with D for the colour Damson.

So I would like to see a vertical image or an added vertical element on your project.

The colour Damson  sometimes called Damson plum is the dark-blue or purple fruit of a plum so I will accept the variations  in colour. 

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 Val's card for you.

I'm in love with these cascading butterflies. Just look at the textures.
Please pop over to Val's blog for more information on how they have been made.

Thankyou  Val  for being my Guest Designer for #87.

Please take the  Guest Designer badge from the side bar.

Here is my inspiration for you.

 I have gone with using a trellis diecut as my vertical element on this card.. 

On this card I have used a stamp with a vertical design as my element.

Winners #86

There were 19 entries for the  'Any shape  ' challenge. Thankyou all for continuing to play along. I loved seeing your interpretation of  the colour quartz and all the shapes that you came up with . 

Picking my Top 3 was no easy task but after deliberating I have chosen the following 

In Numerical order 

I liked the shimmer background as the quartz element and the oh so  delicate die cut.
