The Flower Challenge #49 - Reminder

October is half over and that means it's time for the mid-month reminder cards at The Flower Challenge. It's our 4th birthday so there are prizes to be had for the winners.  Check out the blog to see details.  


The circles on my card are subtle but they work well with the flowers.

I used transparent embossing paste through a swirl stencil on gray cardstock. My daughter had some paint chip like paper in a variety of colors that she used for an art project and gave them to me.  I picked out some shades of purple and green and made the bouquet from Altenew's Garden Picks.  I couldn't decide how to add a sentiment so I left it off.

I hope you'll check out what the Design Team and our guest designer Colleen Balija have made.  Their wonderful cards will surely inspire you to join the challenge.
