Challenge #23 'Die cuts & Flowers'

I just wanted to firstly say a huge thank you to everyone who joined in with last months challenge. I had such a hard time picking my favourites for the Top 3.....thankfully the winner is chosen by random.

This months winner of a £15 voucher to spend instore is...... 

Huge congrats hun, can you please email me at with 'N&A winner' in the subject bar & I will arrange for you to receive your voucher & your winner badge!

Now on to my chosen Top 3 in no particular order.....

Huge congrats to you all, please email me at  with 'N&A Top3' in the subject bar & I will get your Top 3 badges out to you asap!

The theme for August is....


Right just so everyone understands the rules.....flowery papers on there own with just ordinary die cuts won't be in the draw or Top 3, but if you add a bloom or a die cut flower you will be added. To be clear you need a dimensional flower on your creation this month, if its a die cut that's great, but if its a bloom you will need to add a die cut....I really hope that doesn't sound patronising....if it does I'm sorry I don't mean to be xx
