Winners for Challenge PP203: Nance's Theme Challenge

From seashells and sandpipers to lighthouses and boats, in the water, on the water and everything in betweeen!  You wowed us with your beach themed creations this week--thank you for playing along.  Before we get to our Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team.


And Nance's choice for Headliner is.......


Oh my goodness, Gem's card is a true work of art!  At first glance it is lovely but when you read all about the clever techniques she used to create this beauty, you will be in awe!  Perhaps the most impressive, is that she grated Styrofoam to create the look of seafoam in the tidal pool.  The soft colors, pearl finishes and sparkle truly capture the allure of the beach and all it's wonder.  Congratulations Gem, your card is truly a Headliner!

Congratulations to all of our winners! Don't forget to grab your badge for your blogs. Please be sure to join us tomorrow when LeAnne has a gorgeous color challenge for us!

Winners for Challenge #201: Nance's Sketch Challenge

Wow, what a great turnout for our sketch challenge this week!  Thank you so much to everyone for playing along.  I guess you like sketches as much as I do!  Now before we get to our Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team.


And Nance's choice for Headliner is.......

Amanda's card had me at first glance.  The colors are fresh, fun and a fabulous modern take on a baby card.  Each little element is perfectly placed and coordinated.  Love the repeating circles, stars and the way she personalized it for the recipient.  It will be a treasured greeting for years to come and we are so glad she shared it with us.   Congratulations, Amanda, you're my choice for A Cut Above!

Congratulations to all of the winners! Don't forget to grab your badge for your blogs! Please be sure to join us tomorrow when super-fabulous-Sandy has a bonus challenge for us!
