Winners for Challenge #262 - Summing Up Christmas

Oh, my goodness!  I knew stampers were passionate about Christmas but our latest Fill In The Blank Challenge #262 - Summing Up Christmas produced many beautiful entries! To say we had difficulties picking the winners would be an understatement! Just a note about future Fill in the Blank Challenges you might want to enter: Please make sure to let us know in your blog or entry somewhere what WORD or WORDS you used to fill in the blank! We had several entries we couldn't consider, as lovely as they were, because they didn't tell us how they filled in the blank. 

Without further ado, I want to introduce you to our winners! Here they are: 

We had a tie for Top Pick:

Our first Top Pick is: Sherri Thacker

top pick 1

Sherri's patience and persistence paid off as she experimented to create the perfect night sky and brilliant star beam as a background to the amazing wise men die cuts she used. The perspective in the card is unusual and very evocative and puts that star right in the focal plane!

Our second Top Pick is: Mary Deatherage

top pick 2

Mary's words to fill in the blank were Christmas Trees and she used the cutest die cuts to accomplish the illustration of her idea! These whimsical trees were the focal point of a snowflake glittered background of non-traditional colours and light-hearted fun! And look at that cute envelope, too! This one left the Design Team with a glimmer in their eye!

Our Featured Artist is: Milla

Milla completed her sentence with the word "peace" and her card reflects peace in the vintage look of her flickering candles lighting up the darkness around them. Milla did an amazing job on the colouring of her images and in the ink blending that happened all around the edges. The details like the ink splattering added an extra dimension of sparkle to the project. Congratulations, Milla!
