Uniko Challenge #42

Hello crafty friends it's that time again when we are announcing our latest challenge over at Uniko and the theme for this one is Flowers! What a super pretty challenge and I'm sure you'll have no problems with this one at all, especially if you are lucky enough to own many of the floral stamp sets by Uniko.

This month we have also been revisiting the Marvellous Mehndi set which isn't a floral set as such but when is a Mandala not a Mandala hey? Well when it's shaped like a flower as I've done here and added some leafy images to the background.

The leaves are from the Pure Florals: Gerbera set and left monochromatic. I thought this style worked well with the subtle colours of distress inks used to colour the mandala having first heat embossed it with a white pearl embossing powder. The sentiment is from the Simply Said range and I've added a little extra details with some sparkly gems.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is fab-u-lous Cornelia who is one of our previous Uniko Challenge winners. I'm sure you'll all have visited Cornelia's blog in the past as she's on several design teams and creates the most eye-poppingly delightful cards always! Do pop along and visit her blog and leave a friendly word and some love.

You have until Friday, 25th August to link up to the challenge and all the details you need about prizes and how to play can be found over at Uniko HERE
