The Flower Challenge Winner and Picks for the Month of April 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 April challenge was


 #9 Bonnie

Gorgeous flowers and love the large central heart too.
Great design Bonnie!


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



The Top Picks chosen by the Design team were


#25 Sue
                                                    
Such beautiful vivid colouring on the flowers and so clever 
to use little hearts in the background like that too.

                                                
                                           Such a stunning floral bouquet and loving the small
                                                 stencilled hearts in the background too.



Such a fabulous CAS card by Donna, love the little 
hidden heart too.


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



The Honourable Mention for this month was


##3 Diane
                                       Lovely shading and also  brilliant sewing on the flowers
                                         too, how clever Diane. The little hearts peeking out at
                                               the back was such a great finishing touch also!


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