Winners for Challenge #230 - Race in Triplicate

Every time we do a Speed Stamping Challenge, we get one or two new entrants intrigued with the concept of raising their own blood pressure and creating angst and drama for themselves by forcing themselves to create a challenge-worthy card in less than 10 minutes! Strange what humans are willing to do to themselves isn't it? However the results are often astonishing and we have had another difficult time choosing winners, but here they are, and well done, everyone! You're all speed champs!

Our Top Pick is: 

Laura's beautiful card is full of fall hues, decorative speckling and perfect layering, even her sentiment! The design is so pleasingly balanced, both with positioning and colour that it draws your eye exactly where Laura wants it! Those leave images are stunning in their depth! Laura finished her creation in 9m39s.

Our Featured Artist is: Shawna from TheGrandStampede 

This was Shawna's first time doing speed stamping and we think she really aced it! Her card design was simple, as it should be, but it by no means lacked interest! Those three little ladies in kimonos caught everyone's attention right away and they were coloured so well in such a short time! The sentiment was perfect and what a great font! Shawna completed her card in 9 minutes, even with all the copic colouring! Wow! So cute and well-designed!

And we think you may want to check out the following Honorable Mention on their site:
