Winners for Challenge #320 - Perfectly Balanced

Our sketch challenges aim to give you a framework to enhance your creativity! We love seeing what you do with each element of the sketch and how creatively you fill the requirements of the challenge! This week, we had some lovely balanced designs, with lots of shapes filling in for the circle on the sketch! From cowgirls to spaceships, they were all inspired!

Let me introduce you to our winners! Here they are:

Our Top Pick is: Tenia Nelson

Tenia created this fun little vignette for our sketch. For a start, the Design Team was in awe of her mastery of colouring techniques! Then we really enjoyed her playful choice of patterned paper, from polka dots to wood grain to glimmer! Then the CAS aspect made sure that her cowgirl was the complete focal point of the card! Awesome card, Tenia, and congrats on being Top Pick.

Our winning entry, the Featured Artist, Kelly has created a card that's out of this world! The Design Team loved her playfulness, the point of view it has and all the glimmer! We liked the way the stars created the illusion of the horizontal elements under the circle, and the chalkboard effect on the circle! Then there's that favourite sentiment all geared to make this warm your hearts! Great job, Kelly! You're a star!
