December Challenge Winner and Highlights

December was such a hectic month for all of us and yet the mixed media cards in the gallery were nothing short of fabulous! Thank you so much to everyone who played along!

Here's the mixed media card that the design team voted as the winner:

And now here are the highlights. The girls in the design team picked an entry to highlight. It's the entry that uniquely impacted us in some way -- a specific technique that was used, the colors, the creativity, or something in it that touched or impacted us.

Lyndal's and Julia's Hightlight: #11 Lula

Lyndal says, "Lula's fabulous white on white mixed media card features amazing depth and texture, all contained within this gorgeous house shaped card!"

Julia says, "I love the layers, the brick paste stenciling and beautiful layers of snowflakes - and the shape of her card!"

Loll's Highlight: #24 Ann Chuang
Lolls says,"Ann’s shaker card is an amazing example of CAS mixed media. Her fun and colourful snowy winter scene is adorable and made even better with the texture, depth and fun interactive element of the shaker card design."

Jan says, "Donna's card showcases the use of her homemade stamps, a wonderful gelliplate print and fabulous use of color."

Sanna's Highlight: #4 Rahmat
Sanna says, "I love how beautifully this CAS card is done. The little white stitched pearls around the edge made me admire her patience. And the little house on the vellum piece is just too cute! Lovely card!"

Deepti's and Char's Highlight: #5 Mona Pendleton

Deepti says, "The details, colors and texturing on Mona's card are simply incredible. Congrats!"

Char says, "Love the details and beautiful texture!"

Maria F.'s Highlight: #26 Tenia
