X Fold.

It is time again for the Butterfly Challenge to show a new letter of the alphabet. We only have two letters left to go now.
#141 Spin The Butterfly wheel With X for X Fold Card.

  Your 6 elements are:
X fold Card/ Xanadu/Xiketic / Xanthic/Xxxx's/Xtra colours
+your Butterfly.

N.B. Yes these colours really do exist!!

Xanadu  = Grey - green
         Xiketic   = Black  
Xanthic   = Yellow

Rather a hard colour pallette this time so I have added in 
Xtra Colours as a theme so the more the merrier.

Here is my  first inspiration card for you using the following from the wheel.
X Fold/Xxxx's /Xtra colours/ Xanadu/Xiketic/Xanthic/ Butterflies.
As all the prizes for this challenge will be Gift Certificates from Bugaboo  I am show casing some of their digi images  from their huge range  that I have already purchased.
Please go to the Tutorials Page on the Butterfly Blog to see how to make an X Fold card. I have broken it down into easy steps for you to follow.
The card is made up of four sides that create  the X Fold. This is side one. The design paper is by Pink Petticoat called Bold Daisies from Their Isabelline.
The two digi stamps are by bugaboo and are part of a set of three called 'Bfly live laugh love.' Coloured using my Graph'it markers  and a silver gel pen. The silver sentiments  and black shiny dots are from my stash. 
 This is side two
 Side three.
 Side Four. The spinner twizzles as you turn the card round. 

Entering into the following challenges:
Creative Moments #189 Anything goes.
Starz Stamps #9 Things with wings.
The Sisterhood of Crafters #Happy birthday/ fun fold or both.
Water Cooler Challenges #269 Anything goes.
Southern Girls # Anything goes.
More Mixed Media #Anything goes with optional use yellow. 
The Creative Crafters #27 Anything goes.

 My  second inspiration card for you using the following from the wheel.
/Xxxx's /Xtra colours/ Xanadu/Xiketic/Xanthic/ Butterflies.
This Bugaboo image is called Flower Butterfly Vase and I have coloured using my Graph'it markers.  I have used glitter gel pens to edge all the flowers  and leaves. It really does sparkle in the light. I only managed to capture a bit of it in the photos. The spotty paper is a digi  by Cottage and Lace from their Yellow Dots and Swirls set.  Black card for the base card and the black dots are stickers from my stash. I doodled the X's to create the frame.

 Below is a close up of the flowers.
Entering this card in to the following challenges:
Tuesday Throwdown #456 Add a doodle.

Cute Card Thursday #632 Feminine.

The challenge is running for 3 weeks and will finish on 19th May. Hope you will have the time to come and play. 

 Stay Safe and Well.
