#77 Butterflies +F is for Faux and/or the colour Jasmine.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #76 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 #73)

My name is Monika. I live in Kraków- in the South of Poland. I have full-time job as a librarian :) In my free time I enjoy crafting, reading books and studying foreign languages.

Monika  has chosen 

the letter F for Faux which has been teamed with J for the colour Jasmine

So I would like to see a faux technique on your project. There are lots to choose from on You Tube and Splitcoast Stampers.  These are just a few that I found. Stitching, marbling,buttons,metal,tarnished silver, washi tape, patina, crazed porcelain, tiles, brads,silk and glass. The colour Jasmine is a creamy yellow  and don't forget your butterfly/ies.

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 Monika's  card for you.

Monika used: jasmine colour card,  a beautiful embossing folder, inks and hot embossing (false gold) to make this pretty delicate design.

 Please visit  Monika on her blog Here for more details.
Thankyou  Monika for being my Guest Designer for #77.

Here is my inspiration for you.
I have used faux stitching on the front and a further faux technique inside.

Winners #76

Thankyou to everyone who took time out of their busy Easter schedule to flutterby this past fortnight. Thankyou for continuing to play along. As the number of entries were not as many I managed to contain myself to selecting just 3 Top 3's this time but I still had a hard time choosing them.

Message for Teresa of 'Red Obsession  Cards'
Please, please if you are reading this then can you either get in touch with me by the email on my side bar or by accepting my facebook friends request to you. I would love to be able to comment on your beautiful cards but can't as you are google + and your settings will not let me leave a message. I get so frustrated by this as you enter your cards regularly here and I cannot get back to you. (I have even tried leaving a message on your Etsy page).
