This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Flower (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

My favourites are definitely roses in real life, particularly one called 'Sweet Juliet' which is a beautiful apricot colour and a stunning scent. But on cards, I love this little array of Cherry Blossom mixed in with the open roses and closed rosebuds.  I use it a lot (as you may know if you visit me often!).  I love that they come in so many colours and sizes.

I always have a really hard time choosing a favourite flower
I love All flowers all flowers are beautiful
I really love this Zinnia flower stamp and think I will be using it a lot...
I am posting on my blog along with this card lots of my favorite flowers...


Love Daisies, brings the countryside into my kitchen.


I love roses, because they are so delicate and romantic.


Sunflowers for me every time, and why...because they are such happy flowers!!


I love all flowers as they add that something extra to your home or your cards if you use mulberry flowers

It's hard to choose, but the tulip is one of my favourite flowers. I live in the area where  tulips, hyacinths and daffodils are grown. And in March/April/May the fields are full of blooming tulips, hyacinths and daffodils. I love the colour, the variety and scent of these flowers.

So now it's over to you.

We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Flower (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

Hugs from the AYLI girls.
