The Flower Challenge #29 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  'Use your latest Stamps or Dies'.








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


I think this is an easy challenge again as we all buy new craft stuff don't we! In any case it doesn't matter how new it is just what you bought last time.

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 sometimes too.

And here is some more wonderful inspiration from our design team.

The Flower Challenge 'Picks for the Month of January'.

  Now comes the hardest part of the Challenge. 

                           
  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 January challenge was
