Winners for Challenge #303 - Bright 'n Basic

We're excited to announce the winners of Challenge #303 because the Featured Artist will be our Guest Designer for the next Recipe Challenge in two weeks! We love to work with our winners! Our entries were unique and artistic and very hard to choose winners from!

But here they are:

Our Top Pick is: Annette Elias

You have to read Annette's blog to fully appreciate her card for this challenge! Her use of the Floating Strip Technique is a unique feature, but so is the way the strips are die cut in order to fit around the most effectively coloured crab I've ever seen other than in real life! Speaking of IRL, I'll bet the Wink of Stella kicks it up another notch if we could see it clearly! Beautiful entry, Annette!

As Featured Artist this week, Lee Ann will also be invited to be our next Guest Designer! The Design Team loved the exuberant feel to Lee Ann's card, the starburst background, the strip of grounding red cardstock through the center, the affirming sentiment and the gorgeous copic markers colouring job on the engaging image!
Congratulations, Lee Ann, you will be our next Guest Designer for our Recipe Challenge in 2 weeks time. We will be in touch!
