A new challenge is up at Less Is More where the challenge is SUMMER FLOWERS.

Our Guest Designer is our June winner: Meghan Kennihan of Made By Meghan K.

Meghan usually contributes multiple cards to our challenges. Please treat yourself to a stroll through her blog for some wonderful inspiration. You will be so glad you did.

To create my card, I used my new Altenew's Build-A-Flower:Stargazer Layering Stamp and Die set. along with Altenew inks, and Lawn Fawn Scalloped rectangle dies. Stargazers are one of my favorite flowers and the very favorite of my dear friend who has an August birthday. This is her birthday card. I have known her for 45 years and I am indeed so thankful for the day I met her. We live very far apart, but that makes no difference In the quality and longevity of our friendship.

Please head over to the Less Is More Blog and see what Meghan and the Design Team have created for your inspiration. I hope you'll play along with us to share your creations and for a chance to win. Remember to keep your design Clean And Simple.

To be eligible for showCASe and PRIZE WINNER choices you will need to carefully follow the guidance on our GLOSSARY OF TERMS and our HOW TO PLAY pages. Your design should feature lots of clean / white / blank / non patterned / non textured space. All challenge details are on the Less Is More blog. Good Luck!
