Flower Challenge 5th Birthday!

The Flower Challenge is one of my favorite challenges because flowers are my favorite images to create with! I love all florals, foliage, leaves, etc. So I love looking at what they challenge each time and letting it stir some ideas and creativity for a card. They just turned 5 and I want to say Happy Birthday Flower Challenge! They are having a fun “party” to celebrate and I’m excited to play along with the fun! For this challenge, they say to use a shape

I am obsessed with my new haul from Kat Scrappiness of a bunch of mini slimline products!! So for my cards today, the shape I went with is rectangle. I made 2 different cards with the same general layout and floral image. First is this softer peach and gray

The pretty corner floral is from Gina K Designs. I colored it with colored pencils. I haven’t pulled those out in forever and decided it would be fun to use them again. It was! But I’m spoiled with the ease of blending with markers. These took a lot longer! I do think it was worth the time though

Those fabulous peachy enamel dots are also from Kat Scrappiness and are just so delicious added to a card!! I’m going to have to order more in more colors! The adorable “bestie” die is from Catherine Pooler

You can also see below the card and coordinating mini slim envelope. That’s a fun die set from Kat Scrappiness that, once assembles, fits your mini slimline card perfectly! I just used some pattern paper that matched my card. Was nice to use some up!

Next I’ve got a similar card but using brighter colors

That “thank you” sentiment is also by Gina K and there’s some more of those yummy KS enamel dots!

Isn’t that cross stitch border so cute around the edge? Love that die set!

And there are my fun floral corner cards to celebrate the Flower challenge blog’s birthday! Which one do you like best? Softer colors or brighter colors? I think I like the softer one best. I’m a sucker for soft colors. I actually struggle to do bright cards! But that’s why I take challenges and try new things out.

Thanks for stopping by today. See you again soon!
