Paper Players Challenge #34 - Winners

Hi Everyone

Firstly, the team would like to apologize for the issues we had at the beginning of the week with Mr Linky. We hope that the issue has now been resolved and that we shouldn't have a repeat of this issue.

Thank you to those of you who persevered through our problems and got your creations loaded. Boy, were they worth it! The cards you made for our challenge this week were incredible! It was such a pleasure to visit each of your blogs and check out your wonderful creations. It seemed much harder than usual to pick our winners this week.

Here are the design team's choices for CUT ABOVE

Kerin's choice: Anne Marie Hile
I love Anne Marie's combination of texture, design & bling! The scallop circle that mimics the flowers and the fabulous bow are perfect touches the finish this beauty off!

Nance's choice: Denise Willerton
I love Denise's attention to vintage detail with the script background, distressed edges, frayed ribbon, oh my! It's so rich and warm and the perfect card for a wonderful friend...and did you see the inside?! Wow, quilled flowers! Just gorgeous--great job Denise!

Ann's Choice: Julie Gearinger
Texture, pearls and a gorgeous bow! How could I resist this lovely creation by Julie! It's a perfect balance of bold colors, off-set by the delicate flowers. Congratulations on this beauty, Julie!

Stephanie's Choice - Ruff Life
I love the simply vintage elegance of this card from Ruff Life! I love all of the distressed edges, and the center image from really tones down the boldness of the challenge colors. Great Job on being a Cut Above this week!

And here is my choice for HEADLINER:

Jaydee's choice: Jen's Go Confidently

I love the way that Jen had used the Go Confidently sentiment on her focal point. Cutting out the "direction" and mounting it really added dimension and interest to the sentiment. The little bow underneath seems to underline the sentiment. I loved the use of the middle of the medallion stamp layered with a circle and a scalloped circle. A gorgeous card and I know her niece will love it. Congratulations, Jen.

As I said earlier.... it was a week of AWESOME cards. I think one of the most difficult weeks we had so far. The design team all commented on how hard it had been to choose, we really would loved to have given you all a CUT ABOVE status..

We really look forward to seeing what you all do with Lesley's sketch challenge this week.

Have a fabulous Saturday everyone.
