Welcome to The Flower Challenge! This is the challenge that celebrates cards using floral images. Our challenge for March 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 you use Die cuts or Stencils on your cards, as well as the usual FLOWERS of course too. 

To clarify things you can use either Die-Cuts or Stencils or both. 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 a prize sometimes too. Bought flowers or ones just cut out from design paper alone are NOT allowed. If in any doubt please do ask.

No Guest Designer this month due to last minute problems but we are looking forward to having one next month.

Here is some more 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 the challenge winners the day before the start of the next challenge. Have fun crafting!

The Flower Challenge Winner & Picks for the Month of February 2023

                                                 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 our February challenge was

#20 Pam Sparks
