The Flower Challenge Reminder #49 Circle/Circles

How are you all? Are you keeping safe, warm and well? I’m still working from home, which whilst the commute is much shorter, I do miss seeing my colleagues in person, rather than just on camera and definitely miss those corridor chats to bounce ideas around and catch up on the gossip! As the weather is turning chillier here, it’s a great excuse to stay indoors and craft, although I must admit I’m also missing going to craft workshops. 

So, it’s time for a reminder of our current challenge over at The Flower Challenge and don’t forget we have some fantastic prizes on offer. I used John Next Door dies again to make my card, both the Snow Flower and Pine Branches dies along with a few extras from the Tiny Flowers die. I cut the flowers out of Fleurs Flower Forming Foam and added some Mica Magic colour in places. The branches were cut in two shades of green card stock. I drew round a circle die to guide my wreath circle of foliage and I asssembled it all with some small pearls in the flower centres. I added a black sentiment cut from a Paper Boutique die set to finish. Simples! 

It's our 4th Birthday too!

It would be great if you could add our cue card above when entering .

We are happy to say that we are celebrating our 4th Birthday this month! Whoo hoo!! Can't believe it's been 4 years already. What a super team of talented girls we have here too, they are all just amazing! I am sure you have loved seeing all their fabulous floral creations in our gallery. Not to mention all the inspiration from all of you too! We hope you will continue to share with us in the coming months/years also ;)

So to celebrate we are giving away PRIZES for SEVEN of our lucky winners this time. Our main Winner and to 6 others who make it to our showcase this time also. We have decided to choose our winners rather than using the random chooser thingamajig! 

This month we are being sponsored again by the amazing Alex Syberia, she designs such fabulous digi images. Do check them out if you haven't already and what glorious flowers she designs too!

Alex is kindly giving us a coupon for $10 to one of our lucky winners to use in her store.

Also 'The Flower Challenge' is giving away 6 other prizes to our chosen winners also, see all the prizes listed below.
So the top seven people we choose will each win one of the prizes below. We will allocate them ourselves randomly. If you have any of the prizes on offer already, please state that in your post so if chosen you won't get the same one allocated. Or state which you would like ...but if several choose the same prize you will be given one randomly of course ;)

Here are the various stamps/dies you might win below...

  1. LOVE your bright and beautiful floral wreath Cara! Gorgeous design and colours. xx

  2. Beautiful card Cara!
    The craic with my workmates is about the only thing I miss working from home too, a weekly Zoom teabreak with them just isn't the same.

  3. What a beautiful wreath/circle card. The prettiest of colours and design x. Yes missing friends and colleagues is hard x.

  4. What a pretty wreath, Cara! The flowers cut from foam look soft and I love the curled petals!

  5. What a beautiful wreath, Cara. I love the colors.

  6. Beautiful card Cara, sorry I have been so slack at getting around. I see every post as I am on your email thingy but getting around to comment seems to be a skill I am lacking in these days. I love the beautiful floral wreath xx

  7. Such a gorgeous wreath and pretty flowers too Cara, I love it ;) hugs Viv xx

  8. What a wow your wreath is Cara! Love the soft colours of the flowers and the different kinds of foliage. I know what you mean about missing real human interaction - this just isn't how humans are supposed to live is it :/
