The Flower Challenge Picks for the Month of February 2020

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.

As usual there were so many fabulous cards, we struggled to 
narrow them down for our showcase again. We do seem to
 agree on which we all like in the end luckily though so that helps.
 Anyway here are the ones we chose this time below, hope
 you agree with our choices ;)

     
So ...drum roll...here is who won!


The Winner for our February challenge was


No #92 Lee Ann Barrett
This was such a popular winner with us all! Loving the yellow
 and grey colour combo, such beautiful flowers
 and so well coloured also. So gorgeous Lee Ann, well done !



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




The Top Pick chosen by the Design team was
