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 shell-swinscoe@virginmedia.com 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 shell-swinscoe@virginmedia.com  with 'N&A Top3' in the subject bar & I will get your Top 3 badges out to you asap!

The theme for August is....

DIE CUTS & FLOWERS!

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
