Winners for Challenge #197 - Starbursts and Lace

Simple or fancy, this sketch for our latest challenge left a lot of leeway for interpretation and we got so many sweet designs: delicate to rustic and beyond! Like sunbeams through lace curtains conjures up feelings of warmth and home, your creations just made us all warm inside! Here are the winners:

Our Top Pick is: Mary Deatherage 

The neutral palette of Mary's Easter Card is unusual but so artistically effective! The Design Team loved the layering of her sentiment panel, and the way that the twine bow and burlap ribbon added some rustic texture! The use of the white craft ink was particularly effective. If a card can be rustic and elegant at the same time, I think Mary nailed it!                                                                                

And our Featured Artist is: Jenny Engelke

Jenny must have spent oodles of time working on that beautiful bouquet that is the focal point of her card. With a variety of colour shades and floral shapes, layered so carefully, she has created a spectacular 3D bunch of florals but the overall impression is clean and simple. So gorgeous!

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.
