The Flower Challenge #24

Can you believe it's September already?  That means it's time for a new challenge at The Flower Challenge and I'm sure it's one that will bring many entries. 
That's right.  Anything you make that has a flower as the focal image is acceptable, as long as it's stamped or die cut and colored by you.  For my card I used a  stamp from STAMPlorations that designer Deepti sent me when the store was out of stock.  This is its second outing.
I heat embossed it in Altenew Rose Gold on Smokey Shadow cardstock and colored it with my PolyChromos.  I totally forgot the 'rule' about coloring first and heat embossing after but it worked out okay.  It's just more difficult to get into the nooks and crannies when it's already embossed. The sentiment is from HA.

I'd like to welcome our new team member, Milla.  You'll see a wide range of floral cards when you visit The Flower Challenge blog and the Design Team hopes they inspire you to make a card this month.  There is a $25 voucher to the CASual Fridays store for the winner.

Will we see you in the gallery?


  1. Beautiful card Bobby! Your colouring is stunning on the black card stock!

  2. Your coloring on the dark cardstock is wonderful, this is lovely Bobby!

  3. Bobby, your coloring on black card stock makes your flower image pop beautifully but the gold embossing makes it so elegant and stylish. Love the vibrant colors and perfectly placed sentiment, I usually put the sentiment on the bottom but I love how it looks on the top.
    Beautifully done.

  4. I'm loving your greens, on gray, Bobby! It's really a stunner!

  5. so pretty....I don't use black but it looks so rich and lovely.
