So, onto our next challenge

The winner of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer for our next challenge.

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:

For floral embellishments I love lilies and open roses which I often use, as well as the starburst ones which I can't seem to buy anymore.  I also sneaked in a beautiful two-tone pink rose-hip.

However, the flowers that I love most in the garden are tulips, which I rarely use in paper form.  Tulips remind me of Spring with the end of the cold weather in sight. I also love the variety in colour and especially love the double variety which can resemble roses.  I love the pinks and plum colours, but my favourites are probably oranges and yellows, which remind me of little flames lighting up the garden in the Spring sunshine!

I love wild flowers.  I love what they represent.  I love the mixture of colors and I love the loose, flowing composition they display.  The little flowers on this card remind me of the black eyed Susans that can be found in the farm fields and along the highways where I grew up.


I love most flowers. I spend lots of my time in the good weather in my garden enjoying the colours. I have chosen poppies today because they can be used on so many different types of cards.

It was a difficult decision which one I like best Tulips or poppies, but I decided to go for a poppuy. I really love their red colour. It stands out really great when you see them in a grass field. I really love that look.

I love all flowers, but this time I have chosen tulips. I really love to see them in the garden, it means warmer weather is on the way and they come in so many beautiful colours but, alas, their season is too short.

I have so many favourite flowers and my current "real" life favourites are hyacinths which I have had in various colours all winter. My all time favourite has to be roses, the range of colours and fragrances are fantastic and for my project I have chosen a yellow rose.

There are so many flowers I love, and to look at my favourites are daisies, they are so happy, but for fragrance one of the most evocative has to be lily of the valley

This one is a hard one for me, I love all flowers. For this challenge I chose tulips.
I can't wait to see the tulips blossom on the fields. I love the scent and the bright colours.

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

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