Challenge Results!

Thank you so much to Dawn, Maria, Lai-Yoke & Martha for all your sweet comments that are so encouraging to me & for entering my first challenge!  You all blew me away with your wonderful cards inspired by my dress.  

Sending Smiles
WCMD Merry Christmas
Friends Are Special Treasures

Hubby reminded me that he got an A in his college art class (surely making him a qualified judge--we won't say what year that was--LOL!)  Here are his comments about the winning entry:  

  • Good use of the inspiration picture
  • Pleasant freedom of movement about it
  • Very artistic while being unstructured without any harshness
  • Appears to have abstract smiles making the sentiment perfect for the card.  

Yes, the winner is Dawn's lovely creation.  I think I know why so many challenges have a random drawing--I wouldn't have wanted to choose between these terrific cards!  Thanks, hubby!  Nice to get feedback from a non-cardmaker sometimes.

Here's the little giveaway going to Dawn--enjoy!  I have a small token of my appreciation for the rest of you, too.  I just need a Flickr mail with your addresses Martha & Maria, as I have Lai-Yoke's & Dawn's.  Hope you had fun--I sure did!
