The Flower Challenge #20 Reminder

Welcome back to The Flower Challenge. It's the midway point in our current challenge and here is a reminder. This month we want to see some Acetate or Vellum on your cards.





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

Also please remember to use your Florals and they must be the MAIN image on your card.
Please take the time to read our rules in the tab above. We keep having to exclude some cards from winning as they haven't understood the rules properly and this makes us all sad.

We have now added new wording to clarify our rules where there was some confusion, see below.

Please remember when adding flowers they must be flowers you have created; stamped; coloured if digital and printed. Its always sad to have to take a card out of contention because people haven't followed the few rules we have. If your not sure, please ask.

Handmade flowers are acceptable.
Stamped or diecut flowers are acceptable.
Digital flowers are acceptable as long as you have
coloured them in some way yourself.
Stamped and embossed flowers are acceptable.
Floral pattern paper is acceptable but still needs something floral
that you have coloured or made.
Vellum or acetate panels that have flowers imprinted are acceptable but you still need to add colour to it or a flower addition.


And here is some more wonderful inspiration from our design team.










You still have time to add your card. Click here to submit an entry to our challenge. 
The challenge closes on 25th May. For exact time that the challenge closes in your country please go to the link and see the time there as it varies country to country.

We are looking forward to seeing all your entries.

The Flower Challenge 'Picks for the Month of April'

  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 this month is

Milla

This was a very popular winner with us all. Milla's colouring is
 just exquisite as is the design. Well done Milla ;)


Congratulations and don't forget to grab your badge below.



The Top Picks chosen by the Design Team are
