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.

Becca's highlight - #3 Kirsi -  The composition of this just blew me away! I love the repetition of circular shapes, the hand drawing, and the splatters. One word: Gorgeous!

Lee-Anne's highlight - #16  Suchi's card just pops in the gallery.  Love the dramatic look of her fussy cut orange butterflies on that gorgeous black and white background.

Melissa said -  Suchi's vibrant card is a real stand out. I love it's beautiful, but stunning, simplicity.

Maria F's highlight - #21 ElaI just love Ela's grungy rays, making the frightened pumpkin appear to be falling out of those scary hands.

Jenny's highlight - #25  Rahmat says she she's not very good at Mixed Media, but I love her bold design and the use of the paint to highlight the centre flower. I also love the angled panels!

Yasmina's highlight - #19 Mona- I really love this little owl and the design of Mona's card!

Lysa's highlight -  #11 Mac Mable: I love the spider Web and the spiders made from buttons, how clever.

Sanna said -  #23 Mac Mable - at first sight the card looks very "clean" but then there is so much going on when you take a second look. Mixed media fun!!! I found it extremely hard to choose just one highlight this time, there were so many fabulous card submissions this time. Loved everyones cards!!!

Shirley said -  #23 Mac Mable.  I love the balance of this card - the contrasting colours and textures, the frame within a frame, the placement of the butterflies, and then you slide back down those glossy leaves to the sentiment.  Fabulous grouping of elements!

Julia's Highlight - #12 Chris G - I love the face on her ethereal moon, the grey cloud and black bats
