The Flower Challenge: #1 Theme Anything Goes

Welcome to The Flower Challenge and our very first Challenge!  This is the challenge that celebrates cards using floral images.  Our challenge this month is:

Anything Goes with Florals

And here is some inspiration from the Design Team.  Be sure to click on the links to their blogs and leave them some comment love :)



Here are the guidelines for the challenge:

1. You can use any floral stamp or digital image; die cuts or stencil you like, but remember it needs to be the main feature of the project, not a little add on.

2.  When using digital images they must be line art that have been coloured by hand.

3.  Please do a link back to your blog post and not your entire blog

4.  Please don’t link to postings prior to the date of the challenge.

5.  Add our Challenge button and our link to your blog post

6.  You may enter up to 5 times but each entry must be different, follow the theme of the challenge and new. Please no back linking.

7. You may enter up to 6 other challenges. Please be respectful of this and be aware that your entry will be deleted if it is not following any of our rules. If you don't have a blog feel free to use a Flickr Gallery or other online gallery for your project. Just copy the URL location of your card in your gallery and add it to the Inlinkz.

8.  Please turn off Word Verification for ease of commenting on your blog

9.  Also please respect copyright, do not use images that have been copied without the manufacturer or designer's consent !! Any entries found to breach copyright will be deleted.
Please comment on at least 3 other projects in the challenge.

10. Most important of all is make sure you have fun.

The challenge closes on the 25th of the month at 5pm, but we'll be back on the 15th with some more inspiration!    We will announce our challenge winners the day before the start of the next Challenge.  Have fun crafting!
