It was great to see that many of you were up to the challenge of Fire, Ice and Two NeutralsThank you so much to everyone who played along with us.  The Design Team is always amazed by the talent you bring to our challenges.  Having said that, let's take a peek at what grabbed the attention of the Design Team this week!

Our picks for A Cut Above

Lesley's Choice

When I clicked on Shanna's sweet card, my eye was immediately drawn to the cute paper piecing she had done on the "mommy-to-be" outfit!  The red gingham paper behind the main image is so completely adorable and the bow just adds to the sweetness of this card!  The stitching, looks great and adds to that homey feeling this card creates! Congratulations Shanna on being my choice for Cut Above this week.

LeAnne's Choice - Tracey
Tracey's clean styling, paired with the beautiful sketch she employed, all add up to a beautiful card!  The lovely butterfly, so beautifully cut and embellished, is a wonderful focal point, especially mounted on the embossed circle.  And her choice of designer papers complement each other so well!  The whole card is a delight for the eyes!  Congratulations,Tracey, on being my Cut Above this week!

Jaydee's Choice:  Lisa

I fell in love with Lisa's butterfly card.  the Soft Suede creates the perfect backdrop for the strong colors and the central panel was perfect for the sentiment and the butterflies.  I also loved the polka dotted panel and the paper pierced edge.  Clean and simple perfection!  Congratulations on being my Cut Above this week, Lisa.

Nance’s choice: Bobbie
Little Krafty: So Sweet

So sweet indeed!  Bobbie’s adorable scrapbook page stole my heart this week.  I struggle with scrapbooking and admire those, like Bobby, to whom it seems to come naturally.  This page is chock full of sweet details—rosette, pearls, hearts—and all of them work together to highlight that beautiful baby picture.   What a wonderful memento that will be treasured for years to come…congratulations Bobbie, you’re my choice for A Cut Above

Anne Marie's Choice: Justin

There were so many beautiful cards this week, it was so hard to choose just one. I just kept going back to Justin's fantastic birthday card. I love the beautiful balance of color and that layered flower just grabs your attention, instantly. The decorative brad in the center of the flower is the perfect finishing touch, too. A clean design that really packs a fun creative punch! Congratulations, Justin on being my choice this week for A Cut Above!  

And now this week's Headliner: 

Ann's Choice:  Erica Cerwin

Erica's card is a certainly a showstopper this week!  Clean and simple, with just the perfect accents, this card is fabulous! I love how the kite tails flow from square to square and then float right off the bottom of the page.  The tags are adorable, with just the right amount of bling.  But I think we would all agree that it is that bow...that glorious bow...that makes this piece of eye candy super sweet! Congratulations Erica, for being my choice for Headliner this week!

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for a clean and simple challenge from Anne Marie. I guarantee you will love it!
