The Flower Challenge #52 Embossing Heat or Dry

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

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

As it's a brand New Year we would all like to wish you a very Happy New Year from all of the team here at 'The Flower Challenge'. We hope you all had a lovely time with your families and friends over Christmas (Covid circumstances allowing) and we wish you all a very Healthy and Happy New Year ;)

Also some more DT news, sad to say Shona is leaving us. Shona has been with us from the very start of our challenges and she will be very much missed by us all. However she does say she will still try and take part in our challenges in future when she can, so that makes us very happy!

So back to our challenge and this month we would like to see you use some embossing on your cards, it can be either dry embossing or heat embossing. If in any doubt see the examples made by our talented Design Team below! See below for our freebie CALENDAR too!

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 a prize sometimes too. Bought flowers or ones just cut out from design paper only are NOT allowed. If in any doubt please do ask.

As we have all had such a difficult  time last year I am sharing a little 'extra' this month. I designed this A4 calendar to share with you all as a freebie. It has our lovely flower header above at the top too. I hope you enjoy it, see pdf link HERE. I will add a little pic of it just to show you, but don't try printing it as it's poor quality...get the pdf above ;) Viv xx

Our Guest Designer this month is the talented Jyoti, do check out her blog if you have a minute as she makes such amazing cards.
