Winners for Challenge #319 - Fleeting Flowers

It could be argued that Spring Flowers really are fleeting! They do seem to come and go so quickly! They are so lovely, though, that I find myself wishing they could hang around a little longer! Those pastel colours are so appealing after the colourless winter days! 

The Design Team was very impressed with your speed stamping results! They make regular stamping look rushed! But here are the ones we felt deserved special notice:

Our Top Pick is: Deb Horst

Deb crushed this challenge by keeping her focal image small, but bright, with a lot of depth. Then her background consisted of a wide frame of textured white, which was very effective. And to embellish, she used Baker's twine in the same shade of yellow as her spring tulips. And what's more she created this in only six and a half minutes! How's that for awesome! Congratulations, Deb!

Our Featured Artist is: LeAnne Pugliese

LeAnne's beautiful Easter cards just goes to prove that lovely stamping can be done in a short amount of time! The hyacinths she created used different tones of pinks and purples to create depth in her focal point image. She echoes that effect with the greens in the leaves. Making it a square card added more interest and the beautiful font in purple was perfect for the occasion. The Design Team felt this design really stood out! Congratulations, Leanne, and especially for completing all this in under 6 minutes! Well done!
