Hi and welcome to the mid-challenge post for The Flower Challenge.  Can I just say that the Design Team are all thrilled with how well-received this challenge has been.  I mean, we all love flower stamps, but to know that so many other people do too, and want to join in the fun, is fabulous!

We would love you to display our banner !

For my card today, I went back to my NBUS box and pulled out Painted Petals.  I used Tracey's fabulous card at Muse as my inspiration and originally wanted to have several flowers on my card, but they were so big, it just didn't work.  So I ended up with this:

I stuck with bright colors and a similar layout to Tracey's with the flowers covering the top left portion of the card base and the black sentiment in bottom right.  I used Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, Harvest Gold and Canyon Clay inks for the flower and Spring Moss for the leaves.  Once I'd die-cut the flower and leaves and arranged them onto the card base, I realised I could stamp some of the tiny flowers as well so stamped those in Hibiscus Burst.

Finally, I painted the big flower and the centre of the smaller flowers with Wink of Stella.

Thanks for visiting.  Check out the fabulous floral creations by the Design Team and remember, there is still 10 days to go in the Anything Goes challenge, so what's stopping you?
