Flower Challenge Winner & Showcase for the Month of June 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.

 This time the top two were so very close! 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 June challenge was

 No #26 Darnell
