Winners for Challenge #193 - Eclectic Style

Well, we collected quite a few Collection Challenge entries last week and we were impressed with your sense of the eclectic! And all that Poppy Parade really put us in a Valentine's mood! The collective consciousness of the Design Team deliberated conscientiously and came up with our winner's for Challenge #193! Here they are:

Our Top Pick is: Julie Gearinger

Julie's creation was a masterpiece of layering and combining patterns. We loved the way she used the black matting on each element to hold it all together. And the Eiffel Tower was a stunning focal point with the contrasting Poppy Parade! Beautiful!

And our Featured Artist is: Joanne James 

Wowza....this is stunning!  So clean, simple and yet very, very elegant, proving that you don't need a ton of elements to satisfy the Collection Challenges!  The Design Team loved the simple addition of the striped ribbon with the DSP!  And the focal image is coloured masterfully! You hit this one out of the park, Joanne!

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


  1. Wow, thanks so much for choosing my card as your Top Pick and congrats to Joanne- your card is gorgeous!!

  2. Congratulations to Julie on a stunning top pick and thanks for awarding me your featured artist! Usually trying to achieve everything on a recipe challenge throws me into a flat spin but a lot of thought led to something super clean and simple!
