Again we had a very popular challenge month! In May we received 164 entries to the Flower Power challenge! Thank you again for your participation!

The easy part was to see your fabulous creations but the the hard part was to choose the Top 3 and only one Special Mention project!

My choices for the Top 3 are the following (my order is by entry numbers).





This card was among the first entries on the very first day and I knew that time that Lesley's card could be one of the Top 3. I love the colours that she chose! She created the background with lovely soft colours and she used one of my favourite techniques: dabbing the ink with a simple kitchen/bath sponge on the surface :-) And although the flowers beautifully pop out they are not bold or harsh at all. And I must mention too, that this stamp sat from the PaperArtsy is my beloved too.





Again a card! Lou used Tonic Studios stamps with matching dies - and they really matched perfectly :-) Very nice design with not much but enough colours! I love it!






And again a beautiful card! Maria chose a plain white watercolour paper as a background which was perfectly embossed creating a perfect frame for her bouquet. The flowers were fabulously coloured with watercolour technique. 

---------------------------------------------

And now I would like to prove you that I'm not just a card fan! As a DTSM I chose an upcycled mixed media project, an altered salt box by





This pencil holder is just stunning! Ramya used many beautiful handmade flowers what I really appreciate at this challenge!  The feathers were hand cut by Ramya which is amazing! I love the metallic colours over the reddish-pinkish colours! 
This pencil holder looks like a precious jewellery box! 


Congrats to the winners and don't forget to join our June challenge: HEARTS!

Big hugs,
Monika
