Winners for Challenge #172 - Serenity

An amazing collection of the serene and the sublime in your entries from our last challenge #172! I don't know about you, but that colour palette is definitely one that I'm going to pin away for future reference! In the meantime, here are our two winners:

Our Top Pick is: Ingen

Ingen's card is a lovely example of how to create your own designer paper. She used the pale Powder Pink colour to stamp the bird images in the background and then used the very saturated Tranquil Tide ink to stamp the focal image and sentiment right over top! With a sweet, white Baker's twine bow and a gray backing, she created a whimsically attractive greeting card.

And our Featured Artist is: Amy Koenders

By combining the challenge colours with a neutral copper, Amy designed a beautiful spring birthday card. The Design Team loved how she sponged the Powder Pink onto the white and copper designer paper and then backed the front panel with copper foil. The images and sentiment are embossed in copper and coloured in beautifully, and we loved the overall elegance of the result. 

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