PP240 Winners

Happy Saturday everyone! Wow, you sure rocked my colour challenge this week - so many amazing gallery entries which paid wonderful creative homage to this trio of retiring in-colours. Before we get to this week's headliner--- let's see what caught the eye of the design team:


And now our headliner:      



  
  
                                                             
I love a Clean-and-Simple card but what won me over about Brian's card this week was his creative use of stamps and techniques to produce his CAS creation. He wasn't afraid to use huge blocks of colour to make a bold statement and the pairing of the Cheerful Critter bear with the celebratory balloon, along with the fearlessness with which he amputated the bear's other arm to achieve perfect positioning, earned him the accolade of being my headliner this week. You did it Brian - congratulations on being my COLOUR challenge headliner this week!



Winners, please pick up your badges--available HERE! Be sure to check back tomorrow for a new clean and simple challenge hosted by Nance.  See you soon!

Amy's beautifully die-cut inlaid card is so striking and the effort that it took to put all those pieces back, was so worth it!   I love that she used the Adventure Bound grass DSP and the white embossed sentiment is perfect.  This card made my heart skip a beat and it was a great reminder that the butterflies will be here soon.   Congrats, Amy.  Your card is fabulous!

Winners, please pick up your badges--available HERE! Be sure to check back tomorrow for a beautiful color challenge hosted by Joanne.  See you soon!
