Okay, can I just say WOW, loud and proud?! I just went through every JUGS submission for the color challenge I hosted last week and my jaw was on the floor more often than not! I thought this color combo was beautiful before, but you ladies showed me just how stunning it really is! So, thank you for all of the beautiful entries! I've been sitting here for the past 30 minutes filtering through all of my faves trying to figure out which ones I should highlight. I LOVE and hate that you make it soooo hard to choose! LOL The card I chose for Chic of the Week #16 just grabbed me right away. Every time I went back to it, I got a warm, happy feeling in my stomach so I knew it was "the one" ♥
Can I get a huge CONGRATS for Savannah O'Gwynn who submitted this beauty:
Love the vintage feel, the torn pocket with the 5 reasons she loves her man, the stitching, and the patterned paper she used with our gorgeous colors :) Isn't it pretty?!
I also finally managed to narrow my list of favorites to a Top 5...amazingly enough :] Here they are...each one special and beautiful in it's own unique way.
Stephanie Kraft ~ You've gotta check out her gorgeous stitching and the clean look she achieved! Oh and the pin she pierced through the bow! Soooo cute :]
Kathryn B ~ Okay, check out her card and how adorable the little pony is! Seriously...it LOOKS like a My Little Pony, doesn't it? That took me back :] Her stitched heart and the trimmed, embossed heart panel are so pretty and clever! I couldn't resist ♥
Carol Lee ~ She made these flowers come to life by cutting them out and nestling them among the gray leaves! The texture she added to the leaves just added to the elegant look of the card! I just thought this was soooo striking, it warranted mentioning here ♥
Kathrin ~ I had to share this card with everyone! The layering is fab, the sentiment is cleverly displayed, the coloring is AMAZING, but what about those snowflakes?! She made the flakes look like a 3-D flower! I just LOVE how this turned out!!
Teresa Kline ~ Oh Teresa...seriously, this lady always has me rushing to see her beautiful work as soon as I see her name in a challenge lineup! Let me tell you, she ALWAYS produces something inspriational! Her clean yet oh so elegant card had me drooling! That ribbon is GORGEOUS and the beautiful main panel and coloring are spectacular!
Do yourself a favor if you haven't already and check out all of our participant's projects! You will dream about these colros if you do! I cannot even believe the beauties that came out of this combo! You all are one talented group of papercrafters and I'm happy to be crafting among you if even in a small way :]
Savannah, please email me and I will send your Chic of the Week badge straight away!
Thanks to everyone who played along!!! I sure hope we see you again this weekend for our template challenge! Join us tomorrow when Maria hosts and we share a special treat and a special sponsor ♥
Have a great Friday!!
