The Flower Challenge #14 Reminder

 Welcome back to The Flower Challenge. 
 It's the midway point in our current  challenge:


  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 would like you to make a CAS (Clean & Simple)
card. So minimal layers/embellishments  and lots of 'white space'
See examples below from our talented Design Team if you are
 unsure what to make.

Also please remember to use your Florals and they must be
   the MAIN image on your card.

(Just adding here that I quite forgot to tell the winners of
our Birthday prizes to claim an 'I've Won' badge, so sorry!
Please can all winners look in 'badges' tab above to claim
 them, thank you.)
and here is some more wonderful inspiration
 from our design team.


You still have time to add your card.

The challenge closes on 25th November.
