So let’s see what the design team have made for us….

Lori - My card this week includes Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime image and design sheets from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles download collection - what a fun collection for our theme this week! I cut out the main image, butterfly, sentiment and flowers then popped some up with dimensional foam dots for depth and added pearls to the corners and flower centers.

Jacki - For my card I have used papers from the Winston collection and even made a paper by using flowers from the embellishment section over one of the existing papers. The Image is Winnie walking the dog from the new Starfish and Sandcastle download   which I have coloured with polychromo and derwent coloursoft pencil. The sentiment is also from the Winston collection, flowers & ribbon from my stash.
Jane S – Hello! “Rapunzel, Rapunzel let down your green hair”! Not too sure that’s quite right but anyway this gorgeous RAPUNZEL image from Nikky is one of four stunning Fairytale princesses that you can find HERE. I have them all obviously! J Have a lovely crafty day! xxx
AnjieI'm in a CAS mood still so my card today is very simple and I've used the ever so pretty Lemonade Fizz Collection. I printed the heart shaped petals and the leaves out a few times and used some distress inks to colour them. I then used some left over bits of paper from the same collection to make some pendents and mounted them onto a pearlescent card stock. I used one of the little stamps from the Lemonade Fizz stamp set to add a few little highlights on the white background and added some faux stitching and some twine. Finally I arranged things as I wanted them and glued everything  in place. And here is my make.

Jane P.- Summer is in full swing here in PA. and the flowers are taking a real beating in the heat, so it was refreshing being able to create a card using the Summertime Stamp Me Clear & CD Rom
Julie - At last some Sunshine, it's lovely seeing all my Garden in Bloom,  todays card is very simple and created using the fab Daisy Days Stamps and some spray inks in Turquoise and Green, creating my paper 'Garden in Bloom'.

Monica-For this challenge I made a tropical garden: lush, full of green leaves and strong colours flowers. Everything in my card is from Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles.

Tanya -  So I've been continuing with my holiday scrapbook pages and so this week's challenge of Flowers gave me a great opportunity to use some of the photos I took of the church in Monaco and the surrounding gardens.  I've used the lovely flowers and papers from the Magic Garden CD which you can get here.  More pictures and details on my blog. 
Fiki - For this week's make I have used the digi called Etty Shy from Winston Collection
I don't have cuttng machine so I have cut all the embellishments with scissors.  More details can be found on my blog.
Nancy - I decorated my pre-made box using the wonderful Winnie Fruit Punch Collection.
I fussy cut all the flowers from two of the full flower pages found in the florals file.
I also used four of the papers to decorate the inside and outside of the box. 
Gail - For this weeks challenge, I've made a little decorative hanging with a chipboard heart. I used one of the gorgeous papers from the Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection, available on CD-ROM or as an instant download, together with the brand new stamp Tropical Flowers 1.
Romina - For my card I have used "Dandelion Days" which you can find HERE  
I used a stencil to create some petals in the corner with distress ink. For my coloring I used alcohol markers, I don't know why but I want to used green on her hair... I love the result!

Great makes from the DT, I’m sure you will agree, we have some great ideas for you this week!
