Challenge #30--Winners!

Hi all! Thank you to everyone who played along with our Colour Challenge this week. So many lovely cards--you continue to amaze us every week and we loved seeing some new Players this week! Before we get to our headliner, let's check out the Design Team's choices for A Cut Above:

Ann's Choice - Pam Guidici

Masculine cards are always difficult to design, but Pam succeeded in creating a fabulous birthday card. Colored to perfection, the hexagonal image is further accented by two eyelets! Texture to die for, and an adorable puppy, made Pam's card a winner! Congratulations!

LeAnne's Choice - Sandra Farrell

I love Sandra's layout, the papers and images she's used, and the vintage feel of her card--- shabby makes me happy! That little ruffly ribbon is just the icing on the cake! Congrats to you, Sandra!

The clean and simple layout of Rach's card really appealed to me. I love the fact that she captured so much texture with the embossing folder. The perfectly placed small butterfly in the same color as the thank you, immediately draws your eye to the sentiment. Which, is what this card is all about. Perfectly clean and simple. Congratulations, Rach!

Julie's Choice- Stephanie Uzee 

I love Stephanie's card with the beautiful spring feeling and the gorgeous coloring of the blossoms. The white embossed area along with the white scrunched ribbon and button just finish the card off perfectly! 
Congratulations, Stephanie!

Lesley's Choice- Kathy Tanner

I chose Kathy's pretty card because of the cool grid background she created! I love the way she used the colours all together and cut out the roses to accent the sentiment. So pretty and original.  Congratulations Kathy!!

And now...for our Headliner...

Carrie Gaskin - Artistic Avenger

Oh my gosh, Carrie's card just makes you smile doesn't it? I love how she tied the challenge colors together in the sentiment and distressed all the edges but the crowning touch is her "fancy" owl! The eyelashes, the ruffled dress and the pearl necklace send this one straight across the Headlines! Congratulations, Carrie!

We hope to see you back here tomorrow for a fabulous sketch challenge from our very own, uber-talented Ann Schach!  


  1. Congratulations to all the winners--these are wonderful cards ;-)

  2. Thank you to Ann and the rest of the DT for choosing my card and the other winners too. I know it is a difficult decision as there are soooo many great cards! Looking forward to tomorrow to see what Ann has come up with!

  3. Thanks, Jaydee, and the rest of the DT. I can't imagine having to be the one to pick just ONE card among all the choices. I'm honored. :o)

    Congrats to all the winners! :o)

  4. Wow!!!
    Thanks Lesley for choosing my card. You made my day! I love the way the team at paper players chooses a card each and gives the reason why they chose it. It must be hard for you all, but I think it makes your site all the better for doing it.Paper Players is wonderful, I'm so glad I found you.
    Can't wait to see what your next challenge is...

  5. ooohh How exciting. Thanks for choosing my card ladies. And great choice on the Cut Above. Carrie's card is too funny.
