The Flower Challenge #17 Reminder

Welcome back to The Flower Challenge. It's the midway point in our current challenge and here is a reminder.

                                                                     

      
                      
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 to see you do some 'Paper Piecing' on your cards. Please note it's PAPER PIECING and not paper piercing!  So add some patterned paper to part of your image. If in doubt, see what our Design Team have made below.

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

If you care to visit our various DT blogs you will hopefully see a few of our best cards from 2017 too. Don't forget to leave them some comment love if you do. They all work so hard making all the cards for our challenges to inspire you all  ;)


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

The Flower Challenge #17 'Paper Piecing'

Welcome to The Flower Challenge! This is the challenge that celebrates cards using floral images. Our challenge for February is ........'Paper Piecing'.




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

Also note that it's Paper PIECING and NOT Paper Piercing. So easy to confuse the two, I know I have in the past ! (So add some patterned paper to part of your image.) That's how I see it anyway, look at our examples to guide you as always if you are unsure.
Please don't forget to use your florals as always and as your MAIN feature.

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 challenge closes on the 25th of the month at 5pm. but we will be back on the 15th with some more inspiration! We will announce our challenge winners the day before the next challenge. Have fun crafting!

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 this month is

Ericka Strange
