Waffle Flower Crafts October/November Challenge



Hey everyone!  

I'm really excited about the new Waffle Flower Challenge.  As you know, every two months there are two challenges.  You can play along with one or the other or even combine them.

This month there is an inspiration photo:



And also a technique challenge:



I chose to play along with the inspiration photo challenge this month and this is what I came up with:



I am in love with the new Flower Circle dies and knew I wanted to use one as the focal point of my card.  The sentiment was embossed in gold on some woodgrain SC paper which is popped up above some May Arts burlap string as well as MME gold foil vellum.  



I also added some gold splatter using Heidi Swapp Gold Lame Color Shine.  

OK, now it's your turn!  There are THREE chances to win, a winner in each category will be picked as well as a random winner from all entries.  Here are the details:

  • Use at least one of Waffle Flower Crafts products on each entry. List the product name in your blog post. If you use an online gallery (Flickr for example), list the name in the description. This is especially important when you used a product in a clever way that might not be obvious to people. Our team will be looking for them but please help make it easier for them.
  • Enter as many times as you want. If you have a blog, please include the graphic of the category you are entering in and link to the challenge post. This is to help your readers and crafty friends to find us and join the fun!
  • Combine up to 3 other challenges if you want.
Looking forward to checking out your projects!
