New Birdie Pincushion and a Giveaway

This is a watercolor paper postcard...I altered the front, adding a bit of vintage paper, a little rubber stamping and layers and layers of paint.
If you would like to win this postcard, please leave me a comment on this post.
It was hard to get a true color photo, the light washed it out. It has gold metallic
rubbed on it. I will pick a winner on Wed.
Here is my question. What is your favorite flower??
This little pale green birdie has been on many car trips with me and was forgotten in the bottom of my bird box, so she flew out the other day wanting to be finished. I embroidered around her neck adding little felt flowers, that I cut out with very sharp scissors. The flower is a pretty pale pink. I glittered the pins with Martha Stewart's mint green.
Listed on my EBAY

Absolutely adorable! Each birdie pincushion you create is cuter than the one before. I love how you added green glitter to the pin tops. The card is beautiful! Another one of your generous, artistic gifts. My favorite flower is soft pink roses. Hope you have a good weekend.

I forgot my home work assignment.
This is a tough question for me because I'm such a "flower whore" My favorite flower is always the last one I saw :) Although I have noticed lately that I'm having a real love affair with white flowers. Roses, camillas,calla lilies (they are soooo beautiful and in season now) tulips (can't get them here) well you get the idea.... I'm hopeless!!

Your give-a-way brought me out of lurking. Your postcard is absolutely stunning.

My favorite flowers are old roses and Hydrangeas. Unfortunately, Hydrangeas can't be grown, here, in the desert.
