#52 Butterflies + F is for Fancy Folds and/or Fuchsia

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

Winners results for #51  are in the post below.

Thankyou all so much for playing along. 

We have started a brand new set of letters and themes.
I've introduced  a new mix 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 this 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.

They will also be commenting on your entries.  

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

Please Welcome
Samantha Wade
(Winner #46)

Hi, my name is Samantha Wade.  So delighted to be a guest designer this month as i love the butterfly challenge.
I live in the West Midlands with my husband Peter and two ragdoll cats (the girls) I have always been creative and addicted to paper crafting and mixed media.
Shabby Chic and girly are the things I’m drawn too, a bit of sparkle makes me happy.
I like to attend workshops in new areas of craft, being mixed media or a bit different its a great way to learn new techniques and meet other lovely crafters.
You will find me in my craft room in my spare time, I’ve always got a project on the go and i like to share on my blog.

Samantha has chosen 

#52  Butterflies + F is for Fancy Folds
with the additional option of  F is for the colour Fuchsia.

So I would like to see folds of some kind  on your project 
along with your Butterfly/ies of course.

Verb: Folds  = bend( something flexible and relatively flat)
over on itself so that one part of it covers another

If you would like to use the additional option
then here is a paint  chip to give you an idea of the colour. 

Samantha has chosen to make this pretty 
Easel card with a beautifully folded butterfly.

Please visit Samantha on her blog to see it in  detail.

Now I've got my PC back I've added some better photos to my post - and tarted up the butterflies a bit too, so if you'd like to take a second look you'll be very welcome!

Oh, I greatly fear that Fancy Folds is beyond my skill set, but I do have lots of fuchsia butterflies in my butterfly box! :)
