The Flower Challenge Winner and Picks for the Month of April 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 is always a difficult decision again picking our Winner and
 Showcase ! We  always struggle to narrow them down I assure you.
 Anyway here are the ones we chose this time below, hope
 you agree with our choices ;)

(Our kind sponsor for April was  Varadasharma.com with a 
gift code of $10 for digital stamps in their shop.)

As there is a prize this time can our Winner please email us
at viv.hodge@googlemail.com to claim their prize.

So ...drum roll...here is who won!
