The Flower Challenge 'Picks for the Month of June'

Hi everyone. 

  It's been another very busy month here at 'The Flower Challenge' and we 
are so happy to see so many people joining us in our 9th challenge.

   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 this month is 


      Maura
 
                            
       We loved the mix of colours , super background and great stamping too.
     Such a brilliant card, well done !

                                                                             
Congratulations and don't forget to grab your badge below.



The Top Picks chosen by the Design Team are
 (in no particular order)


As soon as we saw this card, we knew it was going to be one
 of our winners. Just gorgeous !



We just loved the way Leslie coloured the Sweet Pea flowers
 it's hard to resist, plus her layout is just lovely.


Congratulations and don't forget to grab your badge below.

    We loved the way she achieved this look without using watercolour 
    paper and yet it has the watercolour look. The colours are beautiful too!

                        We are sorry to say that one of our fabulous Design Team members
                       has left us this month. Karren  is on so many other Design Teams and
                     as a result so busy she is having to drop some. She makes such beautiful
                                              cards she will be very much missed by us all.

                              We wish her all the best and she has assured us she will back
                                      to join in our challenges whenever she can too.
   
                        We still have some amazing Design Team members to inspire you 
                    each month. We hope you will come and join us once again in our latest
                                                       Flower Challenge for June.
