Challenge #45 Theme Challenge Winners

Wow! Everyone really rocked this week's challenge--lots of flowers, but there were some bees, trees and birds as well! Thanks for helping us welcome spring with your fun creations! Now let's see what favs everyone picked!

The Cut Aboves:

Rita's Choice - Joanna M of Inspired by Stamping

Joanna's beautiful card really stood out to me because of the soft color combination. I love the texture, the layers, and the dimension she achieved when she put all the elements together. The beautiful flower at the top topped off with those gorgeous pearls is just divine! Congratulations, Joanna.

Ann's Choice - Debbles Dabbles

In creating this lovely card, Deb used one of my favorite sets, Nature Walk. Texture, lace and flowers all contribute to the soft, vintage feel which I adore. Congratulations, Deb, on being A Cut Above this week!

Anne Marie's Choice: Pam G. of Wacky Whippet Stamper

Everything about Pam's card makes me smile! From the pretty color combo, to the fabulous mix of textures, this is one "tweet" card, indeed. The baker's twine and bling are the perfect accents, too. Congratulations, Pam on being my choice for A Cut Above this week!

Lesley's Choice: Sandra's Stamping Spot

I chose Sandra's card because of the fabulous flowers she created! I love the Colours, the Lace and the bird made from the DSP looks terrific on this card! Congratulations Sandra!

Jaydee's Choice: Rosemary

I loved Rosemary's shabby chic card the minute I saw it. the wrinkled corners, distressed edges, layers of lace and ribbon, bees, glitter brads.... all of these elements were pulled together on this extraordinary card. Rosemary didn't miss a detail - including folding down some of the pieces of the ledger layer. Even the color scheme had that fabulously shabby chic feel. All round gorgeousness! Congratulations on being a Cut Above this week, Rosemary.

And the Headliner for my theme challenge is:

Jen Picard of A New Ink on Life

I must tell you, I shy away from digital scrapbooking, mostly because I don't know how to do it!!! LOL!!! But when I saw Jen's page here, which is a hybrid page, done in these gorgeous soft colors, and the sweet grin of her daughter, I was over the edge! Her CAS style, the unique cork butterfly, the little hidden journaling tag, everything about it said spring!!! Thanks for participating, Jen, and congratulations!

And thanks to everyone who participated! It was so much fun to see all your creations. Be sure to stop back tomorrow when Ann will be our hostess with a color challenge!!
