The Flower Challenge # 49 Use Circles

I know I say this every month, but seriously, where is the time going?! The nights ate definitely starting to draw in here in Lancashire. I’m actually looking forwards to the clocks going back an hour as it means an extra hour in bed that morning! I hope you’re all staying safe and well in these interesting times. I’m still working from home which has greatly reduced my commuting time! Gives me a bit more time to craft/stroke crafting supplies! Speaking of which it’s time for our latest challenge over at The Flower Challenge and it’s also our 4th birthday! I’m so proud to work with such an amazing group of talented crafters (I often feel like I have imposter syndrome compared to them!). Speaking of which we have exciting news about a new member of our DT and prizes to celebrate our birthday. 

I decided to make a circular card and used some die cut circle frames mounted on different heights of foam tape. The sentiment is a Sue Wilson die which I layered up 3 times and flowers and leaves are from John Next Door - Snowflower, Small Leaves and Small Flowers. I applied glue to the flowers and dipped them in Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels, the centres are all actually clear, but some have picked up golden tinge from the artificial light. 

So, all our exciting news and prizes, I copied this from our challenge blog as there’s so much to tell you! 

It's our 4th Birthday too!

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

Lots of exciting news from us this month, sorry if it's a long post!

First more news about our Design Team, as we have had Rachel and Karen sadly leave us recently we  have decided to replace one of them now. Ten seems to be the ideal number we are finding re showcasing etc. Anyway we are very happy to announce that the amazing Loll Thompson from 'Stamping with Loll' is joining our team.

I am sure you will all give her a very warm welcome ;)

Next 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 ;)
