Double Z Fold Card.

It is a new challenge over on the Butterfly Blog and is using the last letter of the Alphabet Z.
#143 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with  Z for Z Fold Card.
Going forwards no one has answered my question from #142 so I take it that everyone is happy to continue with a  New run of Alphabet shapes starting next time.

Here are my inspiration cards for you all  using papers and images from Card-making- downloads 

First card using from the wheel Z Fold Card/Zenchua/Zinc/Zebra/Butterfly .
Design Paper is from Lilac Plaid  and  the Butterfly pattern from Shades of Heather. The digital stamp is by June (Mommas' Scribbles) and called ' A Pansy Spray'. Coloured using my promarkers.
The sentiment is from my stash and the extra butterflies were fussy cut from the backing paper.
 You will find the tutorial for making the Double Z fold card over on the Butterfly Blog under the card shapes tab at the top of the page under the banner header.  I used  my Wink of Stella brush pen  to give a shine to the  flower petals and the fussy cut butterflies. . The Oval die cut is by The Works.

Second  card using from the wheel Z Fold Card/Zenchua/Zinc/Zinwaldite/ Zebra/Butterfly.
Again the shape is a Double Z fold. The digi image is by Elaine Sheldrake and called Tabby Kitten Cat & Roses. Design paper is again from Shades of Heather and the sentiment sticker from my stash.
The digi image download comes with the extra flower shapes and butterflies for you to fussy cut out. I coloured with my Promarkers and then added silver stickles to the flowers/butterflies and leaves.

 I just fell in love with this image as soon as I spotted it.

Third card using from the wheel Z Fold Card/Zinwaldite /Zinc/Zigzag/Butterfly .
This shape is called a Swinging Z fold and you will find a tutorial for making over on the Butterfly Blog under the card shapes tab at the top of the page under the banner heading.  the design papers are both from the Earth_Linen Paper Set. The small butterflies have been given a coating of Wink of Stella and shimmer as the light catches them. The sentiment is a sticker from my stash. The butterfly die is 'Terrace Butterfly  by Memory box.  The zigzag at the top has been done freehand.

Last card using from the wheel //Zinc/Zenchua / Zebra/Butterfly
This  card is show casing  design papers  from Vintage Floral Script paper  and Cottage Chic Butterfly Peach . The die cut used is First Edition Picket Edge.  Sentimnet from my stash.

The prizes for this challenge are Gift Certificates from Card-making-downloads and I have shown you just a tiny selection from the huge range available on their site. Hope you will come along and play in the last challenge of the current  Alphabet.  Challenge runs for 3 weeks.
