Winners for Challenge #178 - Fresh

Well, you wouldn't believe how many definitions there are in the minds of our participants for the word,"Fresh!" I admit I was surprised at the many I had never even thought of. But they were all legitimate and creative and we really enjoyed your take on our theme challenge last week! Our Top Pick and Featured Artist were:

Our Top Pick is: Amy Koenders

Amy's definition of fresh was fresh air and she created a beautiful outdoor scene complete with a wooden frame. The Design Team was impressed with her colouring skills on the forest scene and that her frame even had mitred corners! Wow! And that vellum banner with the beautiful sentiment on enhances the whole creation!

And our Featured Artist is: Jenny Hall

                                   Better With You card created by Jenny Hall at for #cardmaking #cardmaker #watercolorpainting #birdstamp #birdart #jennyhall #jennyhalldesign #stampinup #stamping #rubberstamp #handmadecard #crafts #diy #papercrafts #lifestyle #handpainted                                  
The Design Team loved the sentiment on Jenny's card because it perfectly sums up what we feel about Jenny's talents! That adorable watercoloured bird looks so perky and fresh in aqua and yellow and we loved the creative background, enhancing but not detracting from the bird as the focal point! An award winning design, all around!

Congratulations to our 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.
