Winners for Challenge #288 - We Know What You Did Last Summer!!

Vacations! We yearn for them all year long! And we all have a different idea of a good time when we plan our own. Great ideas in your cards! But it was no holiday choosing a winner! However, we did the deed and here are the winners for As You See It Challenge #288:

(Side note: we wanted to remind you that the maximum number of challenges in which your project can be entered, in order to be eligible for awards in our challenges, is 4 including ours.)

Our Top Pick is: Cheryl Hamilton

This clever card of Cheryl's is actually a gift card holder, but with the Paradise Palms stamp set design on the front, becomes a reflection of Cheryl's desire for a tropical paradise vacay! And we're totally with her on that wish! The use of the beautiful Sun Prints designer paper for much of the background really works well with the rest of the design and helps to build a trifold card with a purpose!

Our Featured Artist is: Deb Horst of Sendable Sentiments

featured artist

Deb loves the beach, and winter or summer, a holiday will find her there! We just loved her jaunty little festive seahorse, wearing a garland of holly for the holidays! He's mounted on a stenciled and ink-blended background of blues with a sand dollar as an embellishment! The snowflake embossed background panel also adds to the Christmas flavour as this card totally merges a beach holiday with the seasonal holidays in a totally natural way! A well-earned Featured Artist award!
