Winners for Challenge #216 - A Recipe for Sparkle

It was such a relief to find some sparkle on our Challenge page for those first two weeks in January! After the festivities of Christmas, things can be so dull that it's nice to find an excuse to light things up again, and you all did that so effectively that we were dazzled by the light! But in spite of our dazzled eyes were were still able to choose a Top Pick and a Featured Artist! Take a look:

We had a tie for Top Pick

Our first Top Pick is: Heather Heroldt

With a very inspiring sentiment, Heather creating a sparkling card where the silvery snowflakes on the designer paper almost matched the exact diameter of the embossed snowflakes on the cardstock underneath and beside them! What a great layout with lots of silver and bling to bring it home! The Design Team Salute you, Heather!

Our second Top Pick is: dj at Sendable Sentiments

dj managed to fulfill the conditions of our Recipe Challenge in some unique ways. The snowflake was a giant, vellum snowflake which also filled the dry embossing requirement, because if you look closely at the photo, it is dry embossed! The silver was the cross-hatched stamped area behind, which is stamped in a silver-metallic ink, not gray, and also the silver button. The Design Team were impressed with dj's creativity.

Our first Featured Artist is: Rebecca Ednie

Rebecca's elegant alcohol ink background with the resist snowflakes caused a gasp of delight from the Design Team and combined with the die cut snowflake flourish and the heartwarming sentiment with the dry embossed lines created a beautiful winning entry! Beautiful work, Rebecca!

Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! Come and check out our new Theme Challenge tomorrow morning on our blog! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.
