One more prize draw (blog candy) to go and that is for the followers that left a comment telling us their favourite post here at Unstampabelles.  It seems that our Recycling/Repurposing challenge was a big hit with a lot of the followers so we will be adding that to our future challenge list.  Thanks so much for taking the time to come in and comment on our post we do love hearing from you.  If you ever have any suggestion we would love to here them too.  Now to choose a winner, I assigned a number from 1 to 18 in the order the comments appeared.  When the number was chosen I then checked if this person was indeed a follower.

So here goes those drums again..........the winner is:

Yes, finally I have made it to our current challenge.  Thanks for hanging in there.

Challenge #14 is all about Paper Flowers.

So we would love to see your creations with an addition of Paper Flowers.  Remember NO STAMPS (Rubber or Digital).

Our wonderful sponsor this month is Blue Edge Crafts who have donated this terrific prize pack of flowers in many forms from their online store.  Be sure to visit here and see all the other goodies they have to offer.
Included in the prize are paper tole sheets, stickers, ribbon roses and butterflies, a Spellbinders Tulips Pendant die and not shown will be a special pack of our new flower paper. 

Time to be inspired.   The Design Team have been working extra hard this month and have come up with amazing Paper Flowers for their creations.  They show how this challenge is open to so many people with the wide range of flower making techniques.  Punches, dies, paper tole, paper embellishments, stickers, origami.
Beth:- has created this beautiful Shadow Box Card.  Beth has used paper tole rose images on the inside of the card and rolled roses trimming the outside.  The sentiment is computer generated.  Beth has also made a beautiful box to place this card in...so be sure to visit her blog for more photos and details.

Looking down into the Shadow Box Card.

Cathy:-  Has used paint samples from the hardware shop to show off her pretty paper flowers on this card.  Two different sized flower punches were used to create these flowers and then a brad added to the centre to hold them together.  Look at that beautiful wire embellishment too.

JanR:- has created this beautiful spray of paper flowers and leaves with her dies and punches.

Lauren:- has been busy scrapping again.  Lauren has used the flower and little girl embellishments from the Kaisercraft Lil' Primrose Collectables range.  Aren't they so sweet.

Merry:-  has been busy with origami this challenge.  Merry has created the Verdi Vase using this video tutorial and then the lilies using this photo tutorial.  The flowers were attached to small branches from around Merry's yard with florist tape.

Sarah:- has created this bright and cheery card with layered paper flowers stickers and a chipboard sentiment.

Stacie:- Paper flower was created using Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Die and Distress Inks.  White sentiment is a rub on and the scalloped background is a great use of Stacie's scrap pieces of paper.

Susan:-  has used a Martha Stewart border punch and the Score Tool from Stampin Up to create these wonderful flowers.  The sentiment is computer generated.

Now it's your turn, we can't wait to see your entries.

****Remember, no stamps (rubber or digital) this also means no sentiments stamps.***
