#81 Butterflies +K is for Key and/or the colour Vermillion.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #80 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 half way through this years 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 back my next Guest Designer.

Tina Z.
 (Winner of #76)

Hi. I am Tina and I live in Slovenia, a country well known for its stunning nature. I have been married to my high school sweetheart and we have a 6 year old daughter and two younger sons (5 and 3 years old). I started cardmaking in 2010 when my husband bought me my green Cuttlebug J.  I didn't know a hobby could be so addictive … Then in April 2015 I created my blog to share my passion for cardmaking.
Both decisions, to start cardmaking and to start blogging,  are among the best in my life, it is so inspiring. I don’t have any specific style, I just love playing with papers and trying different styles and techniques, e.g. CAS, vintage, cute, watercolour …
You can find more on my blog ( The name incorporates my passion for environment (»tree«) and cardmaking (»bug« is short for my green friend Cuttlebug)

Tina  has chosen 

the letter K for Key which has been teamed with V for the colour Vermillion.

So I would like to see a key of some description wooden, stamped or even a key charm on your creations  and the colour Vermillion (which can be brilliant red or scarlet). The colour does  not  have to be the whole of  card it can just be a red bow or ribbon/ lace or design paper.

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 Tina's card for you.

You can't see easily here but this is a lovely twisted easel card.
