Thanks to the keeners who came out to play our Bonus Holiday Challenge #289b. You created some lovely cards for this project. Here are the winners

aysi top pick badge

Our Top Pick is: Fiona Whitehead

Fiona's card definitely has a medieval vibe going here with her neutral tones and the antiquing that she has done. The music background picks up on the music theme from our inspiration photo and manages to look like a medieval music score as well. The main image of the vase with the flowers and the bird also picks up on a theme from the photo as well as colours in the photo, but keeping the colours muted adds to the overall antique look of the whole card. Just lovely!

Our Featured Artist is: Yvon from Blue Heart Stamping

There are so many amazing details in Yvon's card that make up a beautiful project worthy of Featured Artist. First, the strip of music score on the right to pick up on the music theme in the Inspiration Photo. Then the lovely stenciled and splattered polka-dotted background that makes the perfect background for the masterfully coloured roses and foliage, which boasts the colours of the photo. The design team also loved the gold twine arranged so that it curls just right through the images and exits with a flourish! Well done!
