Sketch Challenge #35 ~ Winners

What another great week at the Paper Players!! We loved peeking into your blogs and seeing what you did with the sketch this week!

The CUT ABOVE choices for this week are:

Ann's Choice --- Jeannie

I was blown away by Jeannie's fabulous peony and vellum butterflies! The Garden Green and Pretty in Pink color combination is like a breath of spring! Topped with a Crumb Cake bow and accented with Vintage Vogue wheel work, this card was a winner in my book. Congratulations, Jeannie!

Jaydee's Choice: Susan's Autumn Pheasant

I loved Susan's treatment of the background to the pheasant. The sponging was wonderful. Her paper snipping skills were put to great use on the pheasant and the individual leaves. I had forgotten that our antipodean crafting friends are actually going into Autumn - and this card fits perfectly. I also loved the perfectly matted vertical strips in the background. Gorgeous card. Loved everything about it. Congratulations, Susan.

Kerin's Choice: Kathy Tanner

Kathy's fabulous ribbon flowers caught my eye instantly! I loved the softly sponged edges, with the perfectly placed butterfly. The combination of textures and soft colors is lovely, and the bling just puts it over the top! Congratulations Kathy!

Stephanie's Choice - Sara Hoogendoorn

I have choosen Sara's Simple yet Elegant card this week. I love the panels of white on textured white with that little pop of color. The perfect touch for this card is then stunning flower and how life like it is. Congratulations Sara!

Nance's choice: Christy Q

I was immediately drawn to Christy's card because of her paper and color selection.  This is among my all-time favorite [retired] designer paper.  When I really looked at her card, there are so many design elements repeated throughout that make for such a cohesive design.  I love the polka dot paper with the swiss dot embossing and the Circle Circus stamp, brads and even a circle in the "world"!  But it doesn't stop there--the ovals on the black patterned paper flow into the oval focal piece which brings your eye around to the sentiment.  Wonderfully done, Christy!  Congratulations! 

And our HEADLINER for Challenge #35 is:

Lesley's Choice:  Carla of Carla's Scraps

I just fell in love with Carla's Spring Inspired card! The clean lines of the striped designer paper panels and the layered heart, made this clean and bright beauty a stand out for me!  I especially love how she used the sketch on a white card base and her sweet flowers look perfect all blinged out!!!  Congratulations Carla!!!
