Winners for Challenge #289 - Breakneck Baubles

It continues to only be the brave of heart who take on our speed challenges! Or maybe crafters have a hard time breaking themselves from the tyranny of perfectionism! It can be very freeing to let go of the requirement of being perfect for a challenge like this and just do enough to finish the job adequately in 10 min! Using your scrap pile is NOT cheating! Colouring only part of an image is a great technique to use for a speed challenge and for other times as well! Punches vs dies are great for speed challenges! It's a good thing to try! Okay, next time, right?

Now on to our winners for this challenge!

Our Top Pick is: Cindi Copeland

Cindi used the crisp combination of navy and white to create her breakneck bauble consisting of a simple embossed snowflake and layered circles! So clever and uncomplicated. The addition of rhinestones added the glitter that many baubles bring to the tree and a pretty bow at the top completed the look! It took just 8 minutes and 55 seconds, so Cindi had a whole minute to spare! Look what a beautiful project you can create in under 10 minutes!!

Our Featured Artist is: Stephanie L.

Stephanie's scrappy Christmas bauble is adorable. We loved the technique she used and the paper she chose to do it with! Then the embossed background is so amazingly crisp and festive and the stamped and die cut sentiment is so merry and bold, and the whole card adds up to be a Featured Artist worthy creation, completed in only 9 minutes and 58 seconds! Amazing!

Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! Our winners today can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites. 

Although this was our last regular challenge of the year, we are planning to post a bonus challenge tomorrow to last you over the holidays, giving you something to do when you have the most time to do it! There's often a dearth of challenges to play just when you have the time to play them! This one will be a new kind of challenge for us - an Inspiration Challenge!
