The Flower Challenge #57 CAS

Yep, June... can’t believe it’ll be the longest day in a few weeks, then all downhill from there! I hope all managed to enjoy a long weekend with some sun if you were in England. I made the mistake of planning a visit to my Mum who lives on the edge of the Lake District on the Bank Holiday Monday, I turned round abd came home when I discovered the traffic queuing to get on the motorway! Fortunately the traffic was better when I visited on Wednesday and I still managed to get sunburnt in her garden. Really should have listened to my .mum when she offered me suntan lotion, Mums definitely know best! 

Anyway, down to business, it’s time for our new challenge over at The Flower Challenge and this month we want clean and simple cards (CAS) This month we have a fantastic prize on offer from the fabulous Joy Clair Designs who also generously gave our  DT images to play with so please check out which of my teamies used these beautiful images. I’ve copied and pasted the details below so I get it right! 

Please don't forget to use your Florals as always and as the MAIN feature on your card.
Only 6 other challenges allowed as well as our own.
Also please take a few minutes to read our rules as you may lose out on winning a prize this time too. Bought flowers or ones just cut out from design paper alone are NOT allowed. If in any doubt please do ask.

Our kind sponsor for this month is the amazing Joy Clair Designs, giving our lucky winner 3 digital stamp sets of their choice, up to the value of $25 from their store. Try and pay them a visit as they have such beautiful stamps too. The design team have been given some of their digi stamps to use also (see below our names for info).

Our Guest Designer this month is the fabulous Rachel Alvarado from, do check out her blog/Instagram if you have a minute as she makes such fabulous cards.

Due to an ongoing dispute with my printer (why do they suddenly refuse to print?!) I didn’t use a sponsor image for my card, instead I used the Altenew Book Engravings stamp set. I also used some washi tape (with a dab of glue to secure it) and a sentiment die, the name of the  manufacturer being lost to all eternity some time ago! 


  1. Beautiful CAS card and great design. I love this stamp set and have used it several times.

  2. What a beautiful card with the prettiest of flowers and such an eye catching design x.

  3. Black and white polka dot looks good with everything including your beautiful flowers, Cara.

  4. Beautiful! Your colouring on you flower is a dream!

  5. Love this flower Cara, the colouring is beautiful. I can sympathise with the printer issues, mine likes to make a line here and there just disappear.

  6. This is such a beautiful card Cara! I LOVE the soft pink with black accents. The contrast really makes the colours pop. Gorgeous design and wonderful colouring of your flower and leaves. xx
