Winners for Challenge #223 - Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Somewhere over the Rainbow...we found a whole raft of new crafters who wanted to enter our challenge, and we discovered that rainbows are super popular! And why not? They uplift us all with the vibrant colours that contrast the dull clouds and rain in our lives, which we've all had in spades recently. Anyway, I think it would be a nice gesture to dedicate all these beautiful, colourful entries to celebrate the healthcare workers who are sacrificing so much to care for those sick with the Corona Virus right now!

Then, we had to pick winners, and with so many entries, two winners was just not going to cut it, so we have our usual Top Pick and Featured Artist, but we also have some Honorable Mentions that we wanted to add because they were just so good! Thanks for playing, everyone! We enjoyed this one!

Our Top Pick is: Kristie Goulet

Kristie chose the perfect graphic design to demonstrate rainbow colours with and created a beautiful Clean & Simple card using it as a band across the top. The Design Team were impressed with the skill required to position that stamp and add the colours in the right way to have them blend so perfectly! And the white on black sentiment banner is a great contrast! 

Our Featured Artist is: Cornelia Wenokor

As one, the Design Team's hearts stopped dead when they saw the beautiful creation that Cornelia posted on our site. Those clouds look like cotton candy and are a great way to symbolize hope and sunshine like the lovely sentiment says. And they are a perfect contrast to the silhouette of the little girl with the balloons! Scrumptious!

And we think you may want to check out the following Honorable Mentions on their sites:

2.   Tenia Nelson
21.  Shawna 

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