Winners for Challenge #305 - Recipe for Summer Sunshine

Thanks to all the testers who tried out our Recipe Challenge last week! I loved all the cheery yellows! They were very mood-lifting in a difficult week! We hope all of you enjoyed the uplift as well. Here are our lovely winners for you:

Our Top Pick is: Annette Elias

Annette has created a beautiful collage background in shades of yellow for her sea turtle. For the circle element of the challenge she created a circular window with a beautiful choice of patterned paper for the backing. Swimming lazily over the window is a beautiful sea turtle in shades of yellow and brown and his shell has been molded into a turtle shell shape! The distressed Thank You sentiment is the perfect touch along with the white enamel dots.

And our Featured Artist this week:

This beautiful design of Kimberly's caught the eye of our Design Team for the delicate yellow flowers with the vellum shadows. The arched background on the quilted-look card front is perfect for the lovely floral composition with the speckled patterned paper fronted with vellum as well! The bold, dark thank you really stands out against the delicate design! A Featured Artist-worthy card! Congratulations, Kimberly!
