#82 Butterflies + M is for Matching pairs and/or the colour of Orange peel

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #81 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 we are half way through this years themes already!  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 welcome back my next Guest Designer.

Kate P.
 (Winner of #72)

Hi. I was delighted to be invited as Guest Designer for the Butterfly Challenge #82 . I am married with five sons, seven grandchildren, five of them boys, and two great-grandsons. But since 2009, Chris and I have lived in Andalucia, S.Spain, and our family consists of three dogs and four cats, all rescued animals. I have been crafting in one way or another all my life, but since my retirement in 2007 it has become my main hobby. I started in papercraft with stamping and then was so excited to discover heat embossing! Now I love incorporating die cutting, and making my own cut-outs with my Silhouette Cameo machine. I mostly make cards for personal use, but also dabble in scrapbooking, knitting, crochet, lace-making, and also photography. I follow online tutorials to improve my skills and I love to learn about new materials and techniques on the internet, and usually try them at least once. So I am looking forward to seeing what techniques you have used for this challenge.

Kate has chosen

the letter M for Matching Pairs  which has been teamed with O for the colour of Orange peel.

So I would like to see matching pairs of some description.  It can be in the embellishments or a stamped image. Please state what your matching pair/s are.

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 Kate's card for you.

Kate has chosen two matching Butterflies for her embellishment.
