The Flower Challenge #49




It's time to celebrate!! It's The Flower Challenge's 4th birthday.  It seems like just yesterday when this wonderful challenge began.  Normally the birthday "person" gets the gifts but for this challenge, the winners will get gifts.  There are 7 prizes to be awarded including one from our sponsor this month, Alex Syberia.  Please check our blog for further information.


Also the talented Loll Thompson will be joining our Design Team.  We've had to say goodbye to Rachel Vass and Karen Dunbrook and we will miss them both.  

Now for October's challenge.


I knew right away what stamp let I would use for my card.  Instead of adding circles to my card, I used a WPlus9 set that incorporates circles into flowers.


I masked and stamped them on Bristol so I could color them with Zigs.  Then I cut the panel with MFT's wonky stitches.  What started as an almost one layer card changed when I didn't like the color of my large bloom.  I stamped it again, colored and fussy cut it to place with foam over the original flower.

The Design Team and our guest designer Colleen Balija have some beautiful floral cards incorporating circles to inspire you to join the challenge.  Be sure to check them out at The Flower Challenge.
