The Flower Challenge #49 Circle/Circles

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

It's our 4th Birthday too!

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

Lots of exciting news from us this month, sorry if it's a long post!

First more news about our Design Team, as we have had Rachel and Karen sadly leave us recently we  have decided to replace one of them now. Ten seems to be the ideal number we are finding re showcasing etc. Anyway we are very happy to announce that the amazing Loll Thompson from 'Stamping with Loll' is joining our team.

I am sure you will all give her a very warm welcome ;)

Next we are happy to say that we are celebrating our 4th Birthday this month! Whoo hoo!! Can't believe it's been 4 years already. What a super team of talented girls we have here too, they are all just amazing! I am sure you have loved seeing all their fabulous floral creations in our gallery. Not to mention all the inspiration from all of you too! We hope you will continue to share with us in the coming months/years also ;)

So to celebrate we are giving away PRIZES for SEVEN of our lucky winners this time. Our main Winner and to 6 others who make it to our showcase this time also. We have decided to choose our winners rather than using the random chooser thingamajig! 

This month we are being sponsored again by the amazing Alex Syberia, she designs such fabulous digi images. Do check them out if you haven't already and what glorious flowers she designs too!

Alex is kindly giving us a coupon for $10 to one of our lucky winners to use in her store.

Also 'The Flower Challenge' is giving away 6 other prizes to our chosen winners also, see all the prizes listed below.
So the top seven people we choose will each win one of the prizes below. We will allocate them ourselves randomly. If you have any of the prizes on offer already, please state that in your post so if chosen you won't get the same one allocated. Or state which you would like ...but if several choose the same prize you will be given one randomly of course ;)

Here are the various stamps/dies you might win below...

So this time we would like to see a circle or circles on your cards this month, as well as the usual FLOWERS of course too. If in any doubt see the examples made by our talented Design Team below!

Our 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  prizes this time too. Bought flowers or ones just cut out from design paper are NOT allowed. If in any doubt please do ask.
