The Flower Challenge Winner & Picks for the Month of June 2023

                                                 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 June challenge was

 #54 Priya

colouring of them is just superb!
