The Flower Challenge Winner & Picks for the Month of November 2022

                                                   Now comes the hardest part of the Challenge. 


                           
    We decided we didn't want to use the Random Picker as it was felt
    that cards should be chosen for a number of reasons not 'luck of the draw'.

            When we look at the cards entered we are each drawn to different styles,
          techniques and designs. So all the design team have input, each has been
      asked to pick out three cards that stand out to them and why.

         The cards getting the most votes will then be posted on our Winners post
           and the other cards will be listed under Top Pick and Honourable Mention.


The Winner for our November challenge was






Absolutely stunning card, the watercolouring, the colours and all that sparkle truly
eye-catching. Enna was in top form this month not only is she winner but she was also
chosen as Top Pick by the Design Team.
Congratulations and don't forget to grab your badge below.

Just a quick message from me (Viv), as I and my OH are both having health issues atm. and we are also decluttering for a house move too, I will be stepping back from managing the challenge...not sure for how long. 
Aileen has been kind enough to step up and take over, thanks Aileen. I will still be doing some things such as graphics etc. and helping out where I can and keeping an eye on stuff. I am still making cards for the challenge atm. also. Thanks for understanding ;) Viv x
