Default Overrun with dasies - help me pick an entry?

I've been making TAC Gerbera Daisy cards for a rubber stamp group contest entry (everyone has to use that stamp). I'm all "daisied" out and really want to move on. I have 4 that I think might be OK to use in my gallery.

If you have some free time, can you take a look and let me know which you would send in?

I think I know, but sometimes my taste just dosen't match what most people like.....

They are the last 4 cards in my gallery - here is a link to the last one.

Thanks for looking....

Absolutely love all 4, but Daisy Square is the one that really catches my eye the most!

Oh gosh; they are all beautiful! My favorite is the lavender retriform; love the colors, the beads on the clip and beautifully done technigue and placement of the layers. Good luck! Let us know how it goes.

I really like the bleached daisy one. Man, I LOVE that gerbera daisy stamp! They are my absolute favourite flower!

All the cards are gorgeous.

I love all of the cards! I can't decide between the bleached daisy and the retriform one. Good luck with the contest!

Ditto what everyone said - they are all beautiful. My personal favorite is the Daisy Square card - that one really popped.

I voted already in your gallery for the pink card with the fabulous bow tied with the double swirl. All the cards have such high quality presentation. Nice work!

I love the bleached one, but they are all gorgeous, I just think this one is more competition worthy, has more techniques, is more unusual.

My choices, in order, are Retriform, Bleached, Square, and Circle. Unfortunately, there seems to be no real concensus of opinion in these posts! LOL! Good luck!

beautiful job on all of them! but the "bleached Gerger daisy" is my favorite. the layout and embelleshments all blend perfectly with the colors and the placement of the flowers. it is a gorgeous card. i would choose that one if it were me.

I will go with the square (the ribbon and swirl clip add a lot and the moon glow back ground i bet are even more stunning in person. but I would be happy to provide my address for the unloved runners up....
the lavender retiform i appreciate because the color is more unusual.
I hope you will be able to post all of the winners (or samples or something)

good luck!
Betsy


Oh they are all [email protected] did i forget to say that??
well ok they ARE... NOW would you like my address?

They are already "winners", but add my vote to the daisy square as a first choice. Next would be the bleached one. Good luck in the contest.

When I first looked I liked the first one best. Then I looked at the second on and liked it best. Then I looked at the third one and liked it best. You guessed it on the fourth one! I really do like the circle gerber daisy though. They are all great cards! TFS

It was the same for me. In the end (after going back for a second look, it's definately Square, bleached, retriform, circle. HTH

They're all very nice, but the one that stood out to me is the retriform card.

Default Thanks Everyone!

Thanks everyone for helping me and for the kind comments.

I just found out from the person organizing the contest that I can submit more than one - so with all your help I'm planning to narrow it to 2:

Daisy Square + Bleached,

Possibly 3 - add the retriform.

Its funny, I kinda expected one card to pop to the top as most generally liked but it seems like a bit of a mix.

Probably knowing that different people liked different cards is a good thing to remember when I don't get published or win contests (which is mostly what happens LOL). Maybe it wasn't a "bad" card - it just wasn't the "right" card.
