It's been a slow couple of weeks but the entries finally flew their way home to roost in our gallery and they took some flights of fancy along the way! May I just say that our Design Team loves to read your blog posts and see the stories behind your creations and we're so grateful that you take the time each week to check out our challenges and come to play along. Here are the winners:
Our Top Pick is: Linda Visser - van der Velden
It's all the fantastic little details that make Linda's card such a winner, from the beautifully embossed background, to the stitching, to the choices of designer paper and the lovely ombre butterfly. This card creates a stunning representation of the sketch! You nailed it, Linda!
And our Featured Artist is: Mary Deatherage
Mary has created the quintessential beachy themed card, using the magical technique of paper piecing and she used the perfect choice of designer paper to add to her beach umbrella and deck chair with meticulous fussy cutting! All the other details of her creation add more awesomeness, like the Seaside embossing, the palm tree stamp and the ribbons and doily! Makes me want to head to the beach immediately!
Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! I hope you'll come back and check out our new colour challenge tomorrow! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.
