The Flower Challenge 'Picks for the Month of December'

Hi everyone. 

  It's been another amazing month here at The Flower Challenge and we have 
been blown away once more with all the support given to us in our 
third card Challenge. Especially at such a busy time of the year. 
  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 towards 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 be featured on our winners post
 and the other cards will then be listed under 'Top Pick' and 'Honourable Mention'.

The Winner for this month is


 Congratulations Bozena,  we all drooled over this
 wonderful creation and the work that went into making it.
Please don't forget to grab your badge.

The Top Pick chosen by the Design Team is:

Again another wonderful card and I think done with a stamp
 a few of us have yet none of us had ever thought to do in
 blue - so eye catching.

 Congratulations Anke, and don't forget to grab your badge

Honourable Mentions are: 

(in alphabetical order) 

What you see here is quite a few honourable mentions and thats because
the DT's were a lot more split over their choices this time so
 that meant many more needing acknowledgement. So much amazing talent.
 Congratulations to all of you and don't forget to grab your badge.

 Thank you for joining us and helping to create a stunning gallery 
that celebrates floral stamps.

Vivien has made this wonderful badge for anyone who would 
like to display it on the sidebar on their blog.

 We hope you enjoyed playing along and that you'll come join us
 again for a new challenge starting 4th January.
