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 other love after crafting is photography. I love taking photos of flowers in my garden and one of the most photogenic is the osteospermum which is a variety of daisy. They come in lots of different colours and varieties and I found this LOTV image of a fairy sitting on top of one to use for this challenge!

Although I've used blooms in my image and papers, it's the floral embellishments that I have chosen for my favourite.  I really love the Wild Orchid Craft open roses and white lilies.  I love their 3D effect and especially the pretty petals on the lilies.  I also love roses in my garden, and my favourite is called Sweet Juliet. It is an apricot colour and has an amazingly strong and beautiful scent.


We have some beautiful flowers in our yard.  We have beautiful orchids, anthurium and bromeliads of all colours and sizes, some with amazing scents.  I have to say though, daffodils are still a favourite as they a sign that Spring was on the way.


I love all flowers so it is hard to pick just one. I have chosen this cornflower paper and die. It has a lovely vibrant colour and yet it is delicate.

As a dutch person I had to go for tulips for this challenge. Spring is approaching and I am starting to see tulips everywhere in the stores. I love the shape of a tulip and I love seeing them in all the different colours. I have made a card for my my memory dex.


I love lots of different flowers, but have chosen tulips.  They are a sign that we are seeing the end of winter, they look so regal in their displays and come in such wonderful colours.

At this time of year Snowdrops are my favourite flower. They are like little white beacons on a cold and grey day and, I always think, a hint that spring is on the way. 

I have a few favourites, but for sentimental family reasons, I chose a dog rose this time, I love the simplicity of the flower form and it's wildness whilst still managing to look absolutely stunning.

I have a lot of favourite flowers. For this challenge I chose one of my favourite animal, stamp brand and flowers.
I live in the bulb region in the Netherlands and the bulb fields are so beautiful in the flowering season. I am lucky enough to cycle to work along some fields. Great scent and colours. Good start to begin the day.

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.
