Challenge #20 Winners - Lesley's Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone.

Another fantastic week of submissions. The design team have really enjoyed visiting each of your creations. We really appreciate you playing along with us each week. 
Before we get to our headliner, here are the design team CUT ABOVE choices.  LeAnne, one of our designers was taking a break from blogging this week and so we have 3 Cut Above winners and 1 Headliner this week.  LeAnne will be back blogging with us tomorrow!

Jaydee's Choice

I fell in love with this card by Lynn. I love the colors, the way she used the embossing folder on the 2nd layer to mimic the plaid DSP and the spokes of the wheel. The way the scalloped edge mimics the circles of the wheel. The final touch... the leaf brads and the pumpkins on the bike! Loved it!

Nance's choice: Lori Rider

Lori's card caught my eye right away. I love her use of SU's In Colors and that sweet little flowerpot. Love how she's repeated all the circle elements with the big polka dot paper, the polka dot stamp on the flower pot and even the paper piercing repeats the theme! And, I really like how she turned the sketch--such a great twist on it. Fabulous job Lori!

Ann's Choice: Julie Gearinger

Julie did a fabulous job with the French Foliage stamp set! I love how she combined Cherry Cobbler and Concord Crush, and how she layered the label. Of course, the Old Olive satin bow complimented the color scheme perfectly. However, the icing on the cake was how she lightly sanded the embossing to bring out the white core of the paper. What a touch of genius!

Our Headliner this week is Susie Wittwer of Inspired by Nature

I chose this card because of the beautiful muted colours and sparkly trees.  The main image stamped on Crumb Cake cardstock looked so pretty and the punched edges without layering, really caught my eye!  Congratulations Susie!!!

Congrats to all our winners!  Please grab your winner badges from the left sidebar.  Please join us back here tomorrow for a new Paper Players Plus Recipe Challenge from Ann.


  1. I'm am SO excited to be chosen as the Headliner! It was so much fun to play along. I love your challenges!

  2. Susie made me the best card ever when my son passed away. It has a special place in my memory cabinet. She is so talented.

  3. Oh WOW! Thanks to all you ladies (and especially Jaydee) for my "cut above"! It was such a fun card to make - thank goodness for the Stamp A Ma Jig in getting those little pumpkins to sit just right on the back of the bicycle!!! Fun challenge!

  4. Gorgeous winners this week, ladies!!! Congrats to all!

  5. Thank you so much for choosing my card as one of the "Cut Aboves"! All of the entries were so gorgeous and are such an inspiration to me! Thanks again for the honor and I look forward to playing this week:-)
