Top Picks #45 - cardinal photo

Current Challenge HERE.

We hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday and we wish you all a happy New Years Day! Now to the top picks from challenge #45. Congratulations to these winners!

We loved Lyndal's use of the window, her unique color combination, and the beautiful CAS scene that she created in the window.

We liked Calypso's unique shape, her classic color combination, and the green die cuts look fabulous!

 Angela's layering is stellar, and we especially liked the use of the vellum. She also used a beautiful, unique color combination for a holiday card. 

Congratulations to our winners! Be sure to grab your winner's badge.

Thank you so much for all of the entries last week for our Anything Goes challenge! What amazing creations! Here are the top picks:

Laila's image is so dramatic and her coloring is beautiful! We also like the layout. 

Debbie decorated an MDF key rack with such skill and eye for detail that this was a clear winner for us! Beautiful colors, style and embellishing. It is a very unique home decor piece.

Top Picks #43 - WoW and Winner of the Prize Draw

Current challenge HERE

We really enjoyed seeing all of your White on White creations in our last challenge. They certainly put us in the holiday spirit! We loved looking through all of the beautiful work and here are the top picks that were chosen.

We think that Meggymay's targeted embossing is so clever and the way that she featured that poinsettia is fabulous! 

We love how Hayley layered different elements over the embossing. She demonstrated a great use of glitter and texture, and the big snowflake is so beautiful!

We like how Dagmar incorporated the different winter elements/sports and we find the embossed sentiment to be both lovely and creative. 

Congratulations ladies!!  Please grab your winner's badge below. We look forward to seeing everyone's work in our current Anything Goes challenge!

Top Picks #42 - Wreath

Current challenge HERE.

Thank you to everyone who entered our wreath picture inspiration challenge earlier in the month. The entries did not disappoint! After much consideration, here are our top picks for challenge #42.

We loved Deepti's unique composition, her blending of inks, and the fact that she combined hand drawing with inking. What a fresh, clean card!
We loved Hayley's rosette wreath! Her color choices and embellishments are great and we were all impressed by how much time must have gone into this project.

Pia's silver wreath looks stunning against the black background. We also liked how her embossed panel gives depth. It should also be noted that because of her beautiful work and involvement in our Inkspirational challenges, Pia is our guest designer this month!

Congratulations ladies! Thanks again to everyone who entered. 
Here is the badge for our top 3 to grab:
