#74 Butterflies +E is for Edges and/or the colour Mint green.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #73 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 #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.

The Winner may choose one item from the following prizes.

A Crafts - Too  Embossing Folder ' Butterflies'  + Butterfly stamp by Woodware 
 with extra goodies to complete a card or two.

To go with the above you may choose 
Selection  (A)

Selection (B) 

Each selection contains the following:
Backing card
Heart Doily
Lace or fabric trim
Button or Resin flower
Half pearls or Heart gems
Butterfly stickers or Word beads .
