It would be great if you could add our cue card above when entering our challenge.

                                                         Of course most of all....have fun! 

It's also our 6th Birthday too, ...the years fly by so fast don't they! Do join in and help us celebrate 6 amazing years of seeing all your fabulous cards in our gallery. 

We have lots of PRIZES for our lucky winners this month too, see list below. They will all be allocated on a random bases. As usual we will choose one person to be our overall winner but all winners will get prizes.

I must mention all the beautiful cards made by our talented Design Team who have been such a great source of inspiration to you all over the last six years I know.  A very big Thank You to you all ;)

So this month we would like to see you 'Use a Sentiment' on your cards, 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 alone are NOT allowed. If in any doubt, please do ask.
