The Flower Challenge #21 Reminder

Welcome back to The Flower Challenge. It's the midway point in our current challenge and here is a reminder. This month we want to see you make a card based on one of our Previous Challenges, (see top tab for choices). Please add the Challenge number you are using also.

It would be great if you could add our cue card above when entering our challenge. Of course most of all......have fun !

Please remember to use your Florals and they must be the MAIN image on your card.
Also take the time to read our simple rules (found in top tab above), it's such a shame to miss out on being chosen for our showcase or even a prize sometimes ;)

And here is some more wonderful inspiration from our Design Team and Guest Designer.

The Flower Challenge 'Picks for the Month of May'

  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 May challenge was


Wow this card is so beautiful, it was very popular with us all.
Such a gorgeous vellum flower, great colour choice and love the splattering also.

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

The Top Pick chosen by the Design team was
