The Flower Challenge #24 Reminder

Welcome back to The Flower Challenge. It's the midway point in our current challenge and here is a reminder. This month our theme is an easy one again and 'Anything Goes'.






It would be great if you could add our cue card above when entering our challenge.
Of course most of all....have fun!

We anyone who missed this earlier, we have two surprises to share with you all this month. First we are delighted to introduce another talented crafter who is joining our team here. It's Milla from mustesormi.blogspot.com
 

She was our Guest Designer last month and I am sure you all love her amazing cards. As she has often been in our gallery in the past you have probably visited her blog already but please take the time to look again, you won't be disappointed I know ;)

Now for our second surprise!

This month we are very lucky to have a prize for the winning card! Michele from
CAS-ual Fridays Stamps has kindly agreed to donate a prize for our winner.
The winning entry will receive a voucher for $25, so they can buy whatever they like.


The winner will be announced in the usual manner, the day before the next challenge. 


Please don't forget to use your Florals as always and as the MAIN feature on your card.
Only 6 other challenges allowed as well as our own.
Also please take a few minutes to read our rules in the tab above as you may lose out on winning a prize this time too.


And here is some inspiration from the Design Team. (Be sure to click on the links to their blogs and leave them some comment love :)

The Flower Challenge 'Picks for the Month of August'


                           
   We decided we didn't want to use the Random Picker as it was felt
    that cards should be chosen for a number of reasons not 'luck of the draw'.

            When we look at the cards entered we are each drawn to different styles,
          techniques and designs. So all the design team have input, each has been
      asked to pick out three cards that stand out to them and why.

         The cards getting the most votes will then be posted on our Winners post
           and the other cards will be listed under Top Pick and Honourable Mention.


The Winner for our August challenge was

The Flower Challenge #23 Reminder

Welcome back to The Flower Challenge. It's the midway point in our current challenge and here is a reminder. This month our theme is a 'One Layer card'





It would be great if you could add our cue card above when entering our challenge. Of course most of all......have fun !

This month we are looking for 'One Layer' cards. So a card made with one layer only, a single piece of card folded in half. No other layers allowed.

Just to clarify that means no added ribbon,twine, washi tape, vellum etc. as that counts as another layer sadly. The odd sequin or gem is allowed if they are small and only a very few of them are added. This seems to be the norm for other one layer card challenges so we are going with this too.

Please remember to use your Florals and they must be the MAIN image on your card.
Only six other challenges allowed as well as ours remember.

Also take the time to read our simple rules (found in top tab above), it's such a shame to miss out on being chosen for our showcase or even a prize sometimes ....see below ;)

Prize alert!...there will be a prize for the winning entry next month.......yipee !

This month we have the very talented  Milla from Mustesormi.blogspot.com as our Guest Designer. She makes such beautiful cards, please be sure to visit her blog and leave her a comment or three ;)


And here is some more wonderful inspiration from our Design Team.
