Challenge Rules

 The Challenge will start on the 4th of each month and the Design Team will provide inspiration both at the beginning and a reminder on the 15th with more inspiration. The challenge will close on the 25th of each month at 5pm. We will announce Winner,  Top picks and Honourable Mentions,  the day before the next challenge starts.

1. All entries to be linked before 5pm, 25th of each month.

2. You can use any floral stamp or digital image, die cuts or stencil you like, but remember it needs to be the main feature of the project, not a little add on.

3.  Please remember when adding flowers they must be flowers you have created; stamped; coloured if digital and printed. Its always sad to have to take a card out of contention because people haven't followed the few rules we have. If your not sure, please ask.

Handmade flowers are acceptable.
Stamped or diecut flowers are acceptable.
Digital flowers are acceptable as long as you have
coloured them in some way yourself.
Stamped and embossed flowers are acceptable.
Floral pattern paper is acceptable but still needs something floral
that you have coloured or made.

Vellum or acetate panels that have flowers imprinted are acceptable but you still need to add colour to it or a flower addition.

4. When using digital images they must be line art that have been coloured by hand.

5. Please do a link back to your blog post and not your entire blog

6. Please don’t link to postings prior to the date of the challenge.

7. Add our Challenge theme cue card and our link to your blog post. Please ask if you need help adding it.

8. You may enter up to 5 times but each entry must be different, follow the theme of the challenge and new. Please no back linking.

9. You may enter up to 6 other challenges only. Please be respectful of this and be aware that your entry will be deleted if it is not following any of our rules. If you don't have a blog feel free to use a Flickr Gallery, Instagram or other online gallery for your project. Just copy the URL location of your card in your gallery and add it to the Inlinkz. There is no need to add our cue card in this case, but please remember to mention us by name or tag us.

10. Please turn off Word Verification for ease of commenting on your blog

11. Also please respect copyright, do not use images that have been copied without the manufacturer or designer's consent !! Any entries found to breach copyright will be deleted.
