Winners for PP217: Ann's Color Challenge

It's Saturday, and time to reveal the winners of this week's color challenge. It was amazing to see the beautiful and creative ways in which you used our trio of fall colors.  Of course, as always, you made it tough to choose our winners! We sincerely thank all of you who join us each week.  Before we get to our Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the design team:



And now for Ann's choice for Headliner:

Stamping Shanni 


Shanni's card is a delightful mix of background stamping and fussy cutting.  The Tangelo Twist flowers, with their curled petals,  just "pop" off the page. The rhinestones add the perfect touch of bling to this classic layout.  What friend wouldn't love to receive this beauty in the mail! Congratulations, Shanni, for being my choice for Headliner this week!

Don't forget to join us tomorrow for a Clean and Simple challenge, with a twist, from the amazing Sandy.  And to all of our winners, don't forget to pick up your badges. Until next time...

Hello and Happy Saturday, Stampers! Jaydee here to announce this week’s challenge winners.  It was wonderful to see so many fabulous Halloween creations and, as usual, you made it very  hard for us to choose our winners.

And now for our HEADLINER:

Jodi
Halloween PP216
Jodi's fabulous Halloween scene jumped off the gallery for me this week. The sponging is fabulous and those little ghosts and bats flying around that wonderful sunset are perfect. The spooky trees and jack o lantern decorations against the green lawn were the perfect finishing touch. The card just glows - and makes me smile. Congratulations on being my headliner this week, Jodi.

Don't forget to join us tomorrow for a fabulous color challenge from the always talented Ann.

Hello and Happy Saturday, Stampers! Sandy here to announce this week’s challenge winners, but first I must say that you guys and gals blew me away this week with all your wonderful interpretations of the sketch!

Antonia Speelman



Antonia's clean and simple creation is absolutely stunning and elegant. Plenty of white space allow the flowers to really stand out, and I really love her coloring of them. A simple, heartwarming sentiment finishes off this card beautifully. Congrats on being my Cut Above this week, Antonia! 

The awesome Mike Funke will be leaving us after this challenge, and on behalf of the entire Design Team, a big thank you to you Mike! You've been a pleasure to work with, and we appreciate all your hard work and wonderful creations. Big hugs to you!
