The Flower Challenge Winner and Picks for the Month of January 2021

  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.

It was a VERY difficult decision as usual picking our Winner and
 Showcase ! We  really struggled to narrow them down yet again.

 Anyway here are the ones we chose this time below, hope
 you agree with our choices ;)

So ...drum is who won!

The Winner for our January Challenge was

Great background embossing, CAS design and such sunny
 looking flowers. Also fabulous colour blending too.

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

The Top Pick chosen by the Design team was

No #70 Sathya Kala
Just stunning ! we all loved the amazing deep embossing
and the beautiful colours. The vellum strip is a delicate
addition too.

Great design here and the gold embossing is gorgeous.

Unusual mix of colours which works perfectly!
Almost an antique look to it too.

The bottom card was the entry here, although both are lovely.
Great colouring on the flower and subtle bokeh background 
 is fabulous too.
