Winners for Challenge #196 - Celtic Forests

Faith and begorrah, we had some lush and lovely green and suede designs this time! Aye, and your Design Team Leprechauns had to break out our shillelaghs in order to come to a consensus over the winners. And here they are:

Our Top Pick is: Renee Daley 

We loved the rustic feel of Renee's card and the dapper rooster, all in green, echoing the green pops of colour on the rest of the card! The use of the Crackle Paint background stamp adds such a sense of texture and the stapled ribbon is another lovely rustic touch, in keeping with the country feel of the project. It’s a delight! 

And our Featured Artist is: Joanne James

That clever little frog jumping for joy with the spring behind him is so creative! The choice of designer papers were a great use of the Challenge colours! Wasn't it Kermit the Frog who sang, "It's not easy being green!"? Well, Joanne just made it look good with her colouring skills! Nailed it!!

Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! I hope you'll come back and check out our new sketch challenge tomorrow! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.
