The Flower Challenge #16 Reminder and slow Blogger comments problem

Hi there friends, I am back with a reminder for 'The Flower Challenge'.
Our theme this month is 'Spotlight Stamping'. Lots of amazing projects in our gallery now, go check them out.  Also my teamies have made some beautiful creations too !

Also a big welcome to my latest followers, welcome aboard and thanks for choosing me to follow ;)

I just read somewhere (thanks to whoever it was) about blog comments taking a long time to post.....I sooo have this problem! I assumed it was just me but no it seems it isn't.

 The best solution seems to be to change the way we have our commenting set. Change it from 'embedded' to a 'pop up' window instead.

 I have done that now so hope it helps you all. See HERE for how to do it (in blogger) ...and spread the word...it may help us all !

Anyway without further ado, here are my cards .....I decided to make two ;)

Card 1 

Spotlight stamping, Flower challenge


White Linen card
Bristol Board 
Clearly Besotted 'Just for You' flowers and sentiment
MFT Die-namics Stitched Rectangle die 
Lil' Inkers Stitched round die
TH Distress inks
Neat & Tangled Clear sequins



I stamped my flowers and stamped them again on another piece of card. I used my round die and then coloured the image using my Distress inks. I used 3d pads to stick the circle onto my first image.

I added a few random spots around my first stamped flowers. After using my stitched die on the edge of my card topper I stamped my sentiment and added a little inking to that also. I stuck my sentiment onto my card topper and stuck it all to my card base. A sprinkling of sequins and my card was finished. 


Card 2

 Smooth White card
AltENew 'Blooming bouquet' & sentiment stamp
Copics & Promarkers
Versafine Onyx Black ink
Spellbinders circle die
Neat & tangled sequins


I made an A6 tent fold card base, then made a smaller topper and stamped my image and sentiment.
Then I stamped another flower image and used my circle die to cut a part of it. I coloured the small circle piece and added some Glamour dust. I stuck my circle piece using some 3d pads, added a sprinking of sequins and my card was complete. 

Please add our cue card below when entering our challenge.
You have until the 25th Jan to enter.
