Winners for Challenge #278 - Three to Get Ready

Our sketch challenges aim to give you a framework to enhance your creativity! There was so much you could do with our last sketch with circles (or any other shape) of three! We enjoyed all the variety and imagination.

Without further ado, I want to introduce you to our winners! Here they are:

Our Top Pick is: Yvon of Blue Heart Stamping

We all know the frustration of trying to leave a comment and being confronted with the dreaded "captcha" icon! Well, Yvon has captured that perfectly in her card design! Instead of circles, she used squares representing mini keyboards and linked them together with the cute sentiment using twine! The Design Team loved her clever concept, the colours and textures she used and the care with which she assemble her card entry! Definitely could NOT be made by a robot!

Our Featured Artist is: Laurel Seabrook

The Design Team was collectively amazed by Laurel's beautiful summer themed card! She used beach items as her three elements and a beach towel as the tilted layer underneath, (which we thought was genius)! We loved her colour choices and the paper choices, as well, and the way she framed the front panel. The piece de resistance, however, was the addition of the stitched waves in, under and around all the elements of the sketch, really topping off the beachy feel of the whole project! Anyone for a day at the seashore? Congrats on a creative and well-produced entry, Laurel!
