The Flower Challenge 'Picks for the Month of November'

   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.


Now we are on facebook too there will also be a slideshow of our
 winning cards .Look for 'The Flower Challenge' there.


The Winner for our November challenge was.....
