La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge (LLWWC1) - FLOWER POWER!

Welcome to La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge!

LLWWC1 - "Flower Power"
Hi! my name is Jane and I am hosting this week's challenge!
Each of our DT members will take turns hosting these challenges.
Can you tell what this week's challenge is about?
That's right! You must have at least one flower somewhere on the card. It can be Prima flowers (or similiar), pressed flowers, embossed flowers, stamped flowers, etc. The challenge is to use your flower(s) in a way where it stands out but the main focus should still be your stamped image.

Anyone can play! To kick off our very first challenge,
Irina will be giving away Window La-La to one lucky participant!!

The design team will be select the top 3 favorites every week for each challenge.

The Top 3 will get to put this adorable button on their blog.


The one with the most votes will get 25% off at La-La Land Crafts online store!

Here's what you need to do to participate:

1) Create a NEW card for the challenge.
Yes, you may combine challenges!
