Anything Goes Challenge # 32 - Winners

Hi Guys, Jaydee here. Lesley is unable to post our winners this week, so it is my honor to do that on her behalf!

First of all, the Paper Players would like to thank all of you for your wonderful support of our first ever blog hop. We were blown away by how many of you hopped along with us. You guys are all awesome! As you know, several of the blog hop hostesses had blog candy on offer. They will be sharing the names of the blog hop candy winners on their blog posts this week - so don't forget to check back with them on Sunday.

Now, on to our Cut Above and Headliner choices this week. Once again, you all made it very difficult for us to choose. There really is so much amazing talent out in the blogosphere. The Players really do love visiting your creations and are so grateful that you play along with us.

Here are the choices for Cut Above:

Jaydee's Choice: Cindy's Nature Walk

Cindy's card is stunning. I loved the seam binding ribbon with the lace and the vintage tag. The colors were gorgeous. I also loved the butterfly just about to land on the flowers. In fact, there was nothing I didn't love about this card! All round, a beautifully composed work of art. Congratulations, Cindy!

Ann's Choice - Cindy Beach

What gorgeous details! From the textured flowers to the pearlized accents on the leaves and embossed tulips...this card has it all! The Blushing Bride Designer Series Paper is perfectly paired with a Sahara Sand card base, while the Filigree Brad and pearl forms the perfect floral center. Congratulations, Cindy on this fabulous card!

Nance's choice: Susan Joyce

I love Susan's Chinese New Year card! The combination of stamp sets and the computer generated banner are so much fun and her coloring on the little girl's kimono is fabulous! If all that wasn't enough, the layout looks like a shoji screen--so perfect for an Asian-inspired card. Congratulations Susan and happy year of the rabbit to you!

Julie's Choice- Einat

I love the photo of this darling girl dressed in her vintage clothing- she is so striking! The tag elements on the left hand side with all of the gorgeous lace and pearls add to the overall vintage feel and this card is absolutely stunning- Congrats, Einat a true masterpiece!

LeAnne's Choice - Veronica

This card is just so full of sweetness, from the stitched polka dot background on the kraft card to the cute little pastel-colored images! The flowers, pearls and luscious satin ribbon & bow add more sugar! Congrats, Veronica!

Anne-Marie's choice: Jheri Lynn's: Sick Man

With so many fabulous entries this week, you all made the decision pretty tough. I chose Jheri Lynn's adorable, little "sick man" for my Cut Above this week. With cold and flu season upon us, what better way to share a get well wish then with this sweet care package? Jheri Lynn's little guy has so many great details, right down to the tired eyes and the thermometer. Poor guy! Congrats Jheri Lynn on your Cut Above pick this week.

And, here is our Headliner:

Lesley's choice: Marian's Nature Scenic

Lesley loved Marian's sponged background. The fabulous colors and the way the Nature Walk stamp had been incorporated. She also loved the DSP in the background and the gorgeous bow with the little tag. The embossed butterfly added just the perfect touch! Congratulations, Marian on being our Headliner this week. Your card is gorgeous!

Don't forget to join us tomorrow for our new challenge.

Have a wonderful Saturday night and thank you to all of you for joining us on our challenge again this week.
