May Flowers A2 Card Challenge

Congratulations to our winners for this challenge!  

FIRST CLASS:  #9 E. Parker

IN THE MAILBOX: #3 Laurie, #17 Annie A, #20 M. Sweet and #27 Graciellie

Please send us an email at with First Class Flowers or Mailbox Flowers as applicable to claim your badge!

It's May and that means we need a challenge for FLOWERS!  This time we want to see your beautiful and creative cards using flowers--MAY FLOWERS!  Just remember that your flowers need to be flat enough to fit in an envelope for mailing.  Those thick, hard rose type flowers or rosette flowers just won't do.  And your card must be an A2 size (4.25" x 5.5")

To inspire you and to give you an idea on how you can create a card with FLOWERS that are flat enough for mailing, our Designers have created the following cards.

 Debbie, Scrap Enabler 

Patricia, Thinking of Inking

  Sandy (Challenge Host) Sandy's Crafty Creations

Beautiful FLOWERS!  Now it's your turn!  We'd love to see your A2 MAY FLOWERS CARDS that are flat enough to fit in an envelope and be mailed for first class postage.  No lumpy bumpy flowers, bows, buttons etc.

Here are a few reminders about our challenge requirements:
  1. No square cards.  All cards entered must be A2 size (4.25" x 5.5")
  2. No lumpy, bumpy cards.  Elements on your card need to be relatively flat (no thicker than 1/4")
  3. Limit entries to 3 per challenge.
  4. No Back Linking.  Cards must be posted to your blog or online album during the challenge dates.  If it was posted online BEFORE the beginning of our challenge, it cannot be linked.
  5. Entry must be for the current theme: MAY FLOWERS - A2 CARDS
Additional rules can be found under the Challenge Guidelines tab at the top under our blog header.

Our Designers will be voting on their favorite cards which will be announced on our blog  the Wednesday following the close of the challenge.. We will have one FIRST CLASS and three or more IN THE MAILBOX.  Each chosen will receive one of our fun badges for their blog! The winners will also be announced on our Facebook Page, so come Like us so you'll know quickly if you were a winner.

THIS IS A CARDS ONLY CHALLENGE.  Entries not following our rules and guidelines will be deleted.  Challenge ends Sunday,  May 18th at 6 p.m. Central Time.
