The Flower Challenge #43 'Spring/Autumn'

Welcome to The Flower Challenge! This is the challenge that celebrates cards using floral images. Our challenge for April is .....

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

So this month we would like to see some reference to 'Spring or Autumn' on your cards. As we are a global Design Team and so many of our entries are world wide too it's most likely either Spring or Autumn where you are atm. 

So you could choose Spring or Autumn flowers or just go with Spring or Autumn colours for example. Just make sure to use flowers as always of course...and remember they have to be the MAIN image too!

If in any doubt see the examples made below by our talented Design Team!

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

Please note that you can find us on facebook and also Instagram too. Our Instagram page is @theflowerchallenge2...remember the 2 at the end ;) All links in sidebar!

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. 

Just a quick mention of the 'C' not Christmas but this horrid Coronavirus. It's such a worrying time for us all just now wherever you are in the world. All of the team wish you well and we hope you can find some solace in making your fabulous floral cards.
Maybe try just wandering through our old galleries of cards and find some inspiration there. You all make such amazing cards, it will give you a smile I am sure if nothing else ;) Stay safe everyone!

Our Guest Designer this month is Trina P from Phamtasticdesign our October winner. Do check out her blog if you have a minute as she makes such fabulous cards.

We are being sponsored this month by the amazing Bugaboo Stamps with a $12 gift code for our winner , (approx 4 digital stamps). Such beautiful and fun digital stamps to be found there, do pay them a visit if you haven't already! All the design team have been given some of their stamps to use on their cards also.

"Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations.
That was ten years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week".
