Winners for Challenge #274 - The Meaning of Mama

Mothers have a special place in our hearts. It goes without saying, and it's nice to pay tribute to them at any time of year. Thanks to all who took part in our Fill in the Blank Challenge for their lovely  projects!

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

Our Top Pick is: Claire


Claire did a fabulous job of colouring those luminous roses embossed in gold on her card! Don't they just light up the day? But what really made the Design Team take a second look was the faux frame she created by drawing a line around the flower area and pulling the grey colour into the center making the center look as though it is lower than the outside! Fabulous design! We also liked the way Claire filled in the blank for our challenge: The best thing about mothers  is inner strength!

featured artist badge

Our Featured Artist is: Stef Perry

Stef's stunning card with it's eye-catching red rose is meant to honour what would have been her mother's 100th birthday. As her mom loved Mr. Lincoln roses, this beautiful image has been masterfully coloured in red with deep green leaves looking like you could almost smell their perfume! The Design Team loved the image as well as the subtly stenciled background and the bold gold 100th birthday numbers! This is a beautiful tribute to Stef's mom's unconditional love!

honorable mention badge

There were no Honorable Mentions this week due to too few entries.

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