And now for our Headiner:

There were some wonderful florals showcasing my bright colour palette this week, but I couldn't resist Pat's balloons at sunrise. I could almost feel myself floating away, watching that beautiful sponged sun come up into the sky. Congratulations Pat on being my Headliner this week!

PP440 Challenge Winners

Hi Everyone.

Thank you to all of you who played along with my theme challenge - friends - this week.  As usual, the submissions were of such a high standard - and so varied - that you made it really hard for us to choose our winners.  It was wonderful to see such a variety of styles!

Before I get to the HEADLINER, let's see what caught the eye of the design team:

And now for our Headliner:


Cindy


I kept going back to Cindy's card.   The placement of the birds was perfect.  I loved the repetition of black throughout the card.  The vintage elements with the flowers and ribbon was wonderful - and yet, the turquoise, black, purple, grey and white colors looked so modern.  In the midst of all that formality, was the wonky rectangle die cuts and the off-site focal sentiment!  Fabulous card, Cindy.  Congratulations on being my HEADLINER this week!

Don't forget to come back and join us for our color challenge from the fabulously talented Joanne.
