Winners for Challenge #163

Well, it seems you enjoyed using banners again, or you enjoyed being challenged to come up with something to simulate the banners without actually using them. Whatever your choice, we had some spectacular projects this week and we loved hopping from site to site to look at them all! Well done, everyone! In fact, we couldn't come to a consensus on just two winners and we have a tie for Top Pick this week!

One Top Pick is: Cindy Major

Cindy's snow fall created with embossing paste over the black and green plaid designer paper was a show-stopper along with the lovely font of her sentiment combined with the varied green, black and white banners! It made for an entry that really caught the eye of the Design Team. Awesome!

Our Second Top Pick is: Cathymac

Cathy's adorable chickadee was a crowd fav and we loved how she stitched all those banners together from separate designer paper so that it all looks like it was meant to be together! Such festive Christmas colours and that gorgeous bow tied it all up in a winning package! Well done!

And our Featured Artist is: Melissa Grant


The Design Team were in awe of Melissa's flower garden alternative to the banners in the challenge sketch. The tone on tone background provided just the perfect backdrop to highlight the gorgeous colours in the Swirly Bird floral designs. Partner those with the awesome fonts in her sentiment and the beautiful sequins that embellish the card front, and you can see why she was the Design Team's choice for Featured Artist! Bravo, Melissa!

Congratulations to our three winners and thanks to everyone who played along! I hope you'll come back and check out our new colour challenge tomorrow! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.
