This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Flowers or Trees & Why.
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

We've had quite a few entries who don't say why their chosen items are their favourites, so please ensure you tell us why your creation showcases your style by telling us what your favourite item is according to the challenge theme.

OK, here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

Anyone who knows my style will know that I love adding flowers to my cards.  I expecially love Wild Orchid Crafts blooms as they come in so many colours and sizes. 
I love to twizzle (technical word!!!) the green wires to create a coil, and arrange a set of 5 in decreasing size from the centre largest bloom.  
I've kept the colour scheme simple on this card, so have only used cream flowers, but I have a huge boxful of different colours and sizes.  I also love the dimension they give to a card (until I have to stuff the card in an envelope to send it in the post!)


My goodness this is a real difficult choice as I LOVE flower and tree stamps.
I have chosen flowers as I seem to have more of them in my collection so that makes me think I like flowers more thehhehhee :) 
This is a new stamp and I just could not wait to play with it.


I love making cards with stamped flowers, I love Penny Black flower images and this is one of my favourites. It's called sweet pleasure.


I love Wild Orchid Crafts flowers they are simply beautiful and make cards really special.


I don't have favourite flowers or trees as such because they are all  beautiful! 

My favourite flower or tree stamp?... well, that's a different story and it's this one, Zinnia .
 I've used it in an array of colour combinations (this one being no exception)
 for all sorts of occasions and it's just lovely every single time! 


I love all this floral and my favourite colour is red but also I love pastel colours as well. 

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Flowers or Trees.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
