And now on to our new Design Team Favorites - where the Design Team chooses one of your cards and gives YOU a creative high five!

DT Vikki | #36 I don't do straight  WOW! I absolutely love this card. The CAS style is perfect and I need that skeleton image! Brilliant to see an 'alternative' card; it's really inspired me to see what kind of unusual images are out there- thanks!

DT Angi | #62 Antoinette  I love all the embellishments and the color scheme of your card; it's like looking into a memory box! Soft and feminine, lots of textures and even though this is such a busy card, the children's silhouettes aren't lost. The star is a wonderful way to set them apart.

DT Penny#115 Steph  This is just beautiful and you've used the Lily of the Valley image perfectly. Your colouring is amazing and I especially like the glow from the lantern upon the ladies face. I could go on and on, from shading to light to dark hair..but simply put this card is my idea of perfect! Looking forward to seeing more of your work!

DT Susan#119 Norma  Although I am not a huge Tilda fan, your card is really unusual.  You've coloured the images beautifully, some lovely sentiments and it is not too fussy.  The design of the card is fab and lovely colours and I think it all comes together really well!"

DT Adina | #122 Katie Tate  Your Tilda card represents all things beautiful and sweet. The coloring is magnificent and the color scheme is soft and whimsical. And I love all the little elements that make this so fabulous!

DT Sara#136 niki1  This is just gorgeous! I love the vintage feel to it, the violins and the pockets are perfect!

If you would like to be considered for a DT Fave make your project following the guidelines and theme of the challenge, take good pictures and show us your best work!

CMM71 | On the Farm (animals) Sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps

Welcome to our first *month* long challenge!

We hope that a month long challenge will give you more time to combine your favorite challenges and more time for our Design Team members to leave you some comment love.

As you know, we are no longer doing the Top 3 Picks, but we are adding a new feature:

Design Team Favorites!

We have such a diverse team of designers, that we decided each designer should be able to choose their own favorite to showcase from each challenge!

Winners of the previous challenge announced on the 3rd Friday!

So, here's a quick recap of our guidelines...

Unless the challenge states otherwise, make a card.
Use any image - rubber, clear or digital; any products.
Only link up, if your card fits the theme.
(If it's not obvious, please tell us in your post!)
No back linking - only link up cards dated no earlier than the start date of the challenge.
Only 2 entries per person.

Okay...are you ready?

CMM 71 | June's challenge is:

ON THE FARM (animals)

If it's an animal, and you can find it on the farm...make a card! This should be an easy challenge. After all, there are all kinds of farms these days! Rabbits, deer, salmon, cows, pigs...
