The Flower Challenge Prize Winner and pics for the Month of August 2019

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.

Wow! what a difficult choice selecting our winning card and pics
were this time. So many fantabulous cards in our gallery, you 
really make it harder and harder for us each month.

After much thought we did manage it though so see below to
find out who we all chose.

         We have a  PRIZE to give away to our lucky winner this time too, 
the fabulous Michelle from Clearly Besotted has agreed to give
 our winner an e-gift card for £20.

 Look HERE  to see all of their lovely stamps/dies/stencils etc.

Please can the winner email us
so we can give you details of how to claim your prize.
