#72 Butterflies +P is for Paper Piercing and/or the colour Fern.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.  Winners results for #71 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 gosh the challenge is now 3yrs old. Where did the time go to. If anyone finds it please let me know!!
I'm very pleased to announce the new set of themes and colours for the coming year.  I have thrown the letters up in the air this time round and the new 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 first  Guest Designer for the coming year

(winner of #66)

who is going to start the proceedings off with 

the letter P for Paper Piercing which has been teamed with F for the colour Fern.

You can use the piercing technique anywhere on your card or butterfly.

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.

Here is Karen's card for you.

Karen has used paper piercing to accentuate the corners of her design paper and the colour 
Fern on her butterfly.

Please  go  over to Karen's blog  where you are sure to be in for a treat.  

Thankyou Karen for being my guest Designer for #72.

Please take the  Guest Designer badge from the side bar.

Here is my inspiration for you.
On the card above I have Paper pierced around the shaped of each butterfly and pierced the edge of the frame to thread the embroidery cotton though to create the lattice work

On this card I have paper pierced around the edge of the darker peach card and also around the edge of the pale peach framework.
Please go to my  Blog Here   for a full explanation of how the cards were made.

The Winner may choose one item from the following prizes.

A Darice  Embossing Folder 'Quarterfoil' + Butterfly stamp by LC Designs
 with extra  goodies to complete a card or two.
