Challenge # 33 - Love is in the Air - Winners

Love certainly was in the air last week as is evidenced by all of you who participated in our challenge. There were so many fabulous entries. The members of the Design Team certainly had their work cut out for them. Let's see which projects were selected for our "A Cut Above" awards!

LeAnne's Choice: Rosemarie Diehl

How sweet is this?! Clean & simple has always been one of my favorite styles, and Rose really scored with this little Crumb Cake card with its beribboned envelope and glittery hearts escaping from inside! Just as cute as can be! Congrats, Rosemarie!

Stephanie's Choice - Marlene Peters

I loved everything about Marlene's LOVE card for her husband...the DSP, the color combo, the boldness! Of course that fantastic Red Glitter paper truly makes this a great card for A Cut Above this week! Congratulations, Marlene!

Kerin's Choice - Elaine

The crisp contrast of black & white with a pop of color on Elaine's card is simply fabulous! The added texture and framing of the main image are also delightful! And how about that little cutie dangling from the balloon? Too sweet! Congrats Elaine!

Nance's choice: Anne Marie

I love Anne Marie's balloon full of love card! Glimmer paper, rhinestones, a great color combination and a fun layout send this card far above the clouds...just perfect for A Cut Above! Congratulations, Anne Marie!

Jaydee's Choice: Tara's romantic valentine

I loved Tara's card. The colors are so striking. I love the mixture of papers. I love the scalloped border on the music paper mixed with the perfect polka dot embossing folder. Of course, I love the flowers. The finishing touch for me was the sentiment in a half circle. Just gorgeous! Congratulations, Tara!

And now for this week's Headliner:

Ann's Choice - Colleen Dietrich

Colleen's shabby chic card this week caught my eye immediately. The french script image, with the soft sponging, is so romantic, as are the pearls on the chandelier. The flowers with their distressed edges are beautiful. But the perfect touch on this card is the charm from which the chandelier is suspended! Congratulations on being our Headliner this week, Colleen!

The Paper Players would like to thank all of you for your participation. We invite you to join us tomorrow for our next challenge, hosted by the talented Jaydee! See you then!
