Thank You Wreath....Guest Designer Uniko Challenge #34~Flowers, Muse Challenge

Hello!

Once again, I'm honoured and delighted to be joining Bev and her team, as a guest designer,


 over at Uniko for a reminder post about the current Uniko Challenge #34~Flowers.  



My card's  layout took several cues from Muse Challenge #175, where Jenni treated us to this floral delight:


the circle, the flowers along the edge and an inside-the-circle sentiment.  The flowers are actually a lovely winter-themed set - Background Builders: Vines Winter Additions - that I transformed into a summer wreath.  The sentiments are from Bright Butterflies (now retired, but gorgeous samples of the butterflies can be seen here) and Pure Floral: Gerbera.


A little set with mega possibilities. I can envision a Fall-themed wreath, with a simple change of colours, as well as a variety of Christmas showcases.

I hope you'll bring out your flower images and play along with us!  All the details are at the Uniko blog, together with all kinds of flower inspiration from the talented Design Team. Please be sure to take a look; you will be dazzled!  The deadline for submission is midnight (BST) on Friday 12th August (7.00pm EDT).


See you in the gallery!

Thank you for spending part of your day with me; your visit brings me joy!!
