STRAIGHT THROUGH THE HEART - CONTEST WINNERS

HI, DRUM ROLL PLEASE...WE ARE THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE THE WINNERS of our STRAIGHT THROUGH YOUR HEART CONTEST! My staff have chosen the winners and they are....

GRAND PRIZE WINNER is Candy Mills.



All of the elements are gorgeous! Something my staff loved was the fact that Candy used "black" grass and then a background layer that was also black. They thought this was very striking. The coloring is superb and love all the sparkle!

1ST RUNNER UP is Rosemary Bridges.





What an audience this is for the "Magnolia Archery Contest". We reckon Chef Edwin is on his lunch break from the "Magnolia Cooking School". Stunning card so many elements...LOVE the "Bulls-eye"!


2ND RUNNER UP is Glenda Mollett. Glenda's coloring is superb.





Glenda's coloring is superb! The colors are simply "delicious". Wonderful elements pull together creating a wonderful flow to the card. Love the butterflies!

OUTSIDE OF THE BOX WINNERS.
We have 3 winners, Sue Morris, Cissy Teeter,Tammy Schram. My staff couldn't decide as they are all wonderful creations.


Sue's card is a collapsible box card. The composition of this card is excellent, all the right elements to create a wonderful scene. I love the colors. 










 A beautifully decorated heart wreath frames Archer Tilda, a clever composition. The coloring is excellent!

 




Tammy created a beautiful seed packet heart embellished with the lovely Tilda. Keeping the heart theme is excellent. Don't you just love the "roses" and the sequins, perfect embellishments.




RANDOM NUMBER GENERATOR winner is Christina Carstensen.





I love the old world quality Christina brought to her card. You can imagine Tilda is deep in Sherwood Forest surrounded by lush greenery. A stunning card!!


I would like to show you the other entries as they are each very worthy of showing. They are in 
random order. The name of the artist is above the photo.

Anne Cecile Lanquetin


 Love the tree and hearts, border too!!


Barb Fleming

Flower Soft, flowers and a beautiful cracked heart and such dimension to Barb's card.




Charlene Randall
A shadow box is the perfect card fold to showcase the Old Oak.

Julie Glasgow
 
 
 This step card creates the perfect spots for all the wonderful elements on Julie's "CardART". Love the grass! 

Miranda van der Kratts

 Miranda creates a shabby chic look, love the ribbon!

Pam Berrisford

Thank you to everyone who entered the contest. As you can see by all the extra-ordinary entries it was a difficult job for my staff to pick the winners. Everyone is a winner though as you will each receive this stamp just for taking part.
