Winners for Challenge #317 - A Recipe for Robbie Burns

Thanks to all the testers who tried out our Recipe Challenge last week! We all loved the elements you included to fulfill the recipe requirements, especially the plaid element! It's amazing how 5 different ingredients can be combined in so many different ways. Your cards took the concept of plaid in whole new directions and gave us some beautiful designs! Here are the winners:

Jennie stenciled some lovely yellow plaid as a vertical element down the side of her card front, then used it as a showcase for the beautiful embossed and layered daisy die cuts. Her horizontal layers are lovely spring colours and give us the embossed element of the challenge as well. The cute sentiment boasts the adorable twine bow and the Design Team also loved the coordinating colours of the adhesive dots she used! Congratulations for the Top Pick award, Jennie!

And our Featured Artist this week:

Erin, our Featured Artist this week, created the most intriguing plaid pattern that formed the whole background of her card! The die cuts were delicate gold foliage with gold cord loops forming the twine element of the challenge. That small white heart has been embossed and the team loved the mix of fonts in the sentiment and also the combination of yellow, gold and black as the palette of the beautiful card! Gold dots completed the look. Congratulations on a truly artistic project, Erin!
