Winners for Challenge #25--A Sketch Challenge

The Paper Players had a lot to be thankful for this week--a big thank you to all who joined us in Challenge #25! We know it was a busy week for many and we are so glad that you could join us. Your cards using Nance's sketch were fantastic! So, let's see who were selected as this week's "A Cut Above" winners!

Ann's Choice: Vicki Burdick

Vicki Burdick's cards are always stunning, and this week proved to be no different! She blew me away with these clever and unique textured pumpkins! I loved her interpretation of the sketch, as well as that fabulous scrunchy ribbon. The curly stems, the balanced brads, and the scalloped border...what is there not to love about this perfect Thanksgiving card? Congratulations, Vicki!

Lesley's Choice: Angela from Stampin' Away

I chose Angela's pretty holiday card because I just loved the colour combo she used! The clean and simple layout looks terrific with the snowflakes and the sentiment. I think this card is lovely and she executed Nance's sketch beautifully!! Congratulations Angela!!

I just loved how Julie used the sketch to create her adorable hot cocoa gift box! Her mix of papers and texture is so warm and cozy with the gorgeous stitching she added. That cute little penguin is the perfect touch, too. This gift presentation would instantly warm the heart of anyone who receives it! Congratulations, Julie!

I loved the circle and butterfly elements on Susie's card - and I especially loved the bling. The repetition of the circle elements added so much to this clean, simple and stunning card. Congratulations, Susie.

And our "Headliner" this week is....

Nance's choice: Linda Callahan

Oh my goodness, Linda's card took my breath away! Linda's cards are always crisp, elegant and created with an inspiring attention to detail. This stunning creation is no exception. Those beautiful leaves just POP off all the lovely green and brown and her frayed ribbon treatment is the perfect touch. Congratulations, Linda!
