Challenge #17--Flowers

Spring has sprung here in Southern Ontario and everywhere you look there are blossoms unfolding!! So to celebrate Spring our challenge this month is all about FLOWERS!!! You can use floral papers, stamps that incorportate flowers, or floral embellies--just as long as you have a flower somewhere on your card/project feel free to join in the fun. See the sidebar for submission guidelines.

This month I used Crissy's brand new image called "Nose to Nose", which you can find at Whimsy Stamps!! I adore this image so much I had to colour it three times and in different sizes!! I do apologize for poor picture quality--for whatever reason my camera just doesn't love monochrome artwork.

Here's my first card...

A closer look at the artwork...

And the inside...

I thought this sentiment was perfect for this image...

Card #2...

For more details on my cards go to my blog--Sally Cicada Designs!!

Now it's your turn to show us your Flower themed cards!! See upload instructions below!! There will be five free digi's given to one lucky challenge participant who will be chosen by at the end of the month! You may now use images from any company and still be included in the draw for the blog candy prize! Those who use one of Crissy's images, either from her rubber or digital collections will be entered twice in the draw. But please respect the rule of no more than three entries per month. Otherwise your entries could be deleted.

Here are the winners of Crissy's Artist Choice Award, for last month's challenge with the theme of Spring is in the Air or Baby cards!! These are cards that caught my eye for one reason or another, that I felt were the most impressive from the bunch! Ladies, don't forget to pick up your blog award badge on the sidebar for shining this month!!
