Hi Elizabeth
I had a look at the competition and was astounded to see that there is a charge to enter. Can this possibly be the norm?
(Love your Flower Art!)

Hi Juno,

Thank you for stopping by all the way from Ireland!

I was disappointed to see that there was a charge as well, but it's not uncommon for true art competitions and shows to charge a fee. There's a certain amount of overhead for every competition, and the fee also discourages people who might not otherwise take it seriously.

Your cards are very intriguing!
