Winners for Challenge #222: Ann's Clean and Simple Thank You Challenge

Our theme this past week was Clean and Simple: Thank You, and we must say all of you gave us something for which we are thankful...a gallery filled with fabulous cards. Our task of selecting our winners this week was definitely challenging.  Before we get to this week's Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of our Design Team:



And now Ann's choice for headliner:

Joyce
 
Joyce's leaves, so perfectly overlapped in an eye-pleasing arrangement, provided a delightful pop of color against the burlap textured white base. My eyes were drawn to the stacked inlay sentiment, which was stunning against the colorful leaves.  A beautiful example of a clean and simple card! Congratulations, Joyce, on being my choice for this week's Headliner!

We encourage all winners to proudly display their badges, available HERE!  Please join us tomorrow for a sketch challenge from the talented LeAnne!

Winners for Paper Players #221: Sandy's Color Challenge

Happy Saturday! Thanks so much to all who played along with our color challenge this week. It was difficult to choose from so many beautiful creations. You all made for quite a lovely gallery! 

.....Before we get to this week's Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of our design team:




And now Sandy's choice for headliner:


Pam Dotts
Clearly Southern Stampin'



Pam’s Flowering Flourishes caught my eye immediately. The spare use of color against the clean vanilla background is stunning. I also love how she used framed the center panel with green  on just two sides. An all around striking card. Congrats on being my headliner for this week, Pam!

Be sure to tune in tomorrow when Ann has a fun theme challenge for us!

And now LeAnne's choice for headliner:






Julie's card is a tribute to her husband who is facing a challenging illness. (You can read the details on her blog.)  I just love all the vintage sports images she has incorporated into her card, which is done in Baltimore Oriole colors---pretty close to my home!  Congrats, Julie, on being my Headliner this week!
