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.

Melissa says, "Ooooowie, baby! Lee Ann's card grabbed my sorta CAS, red flower lovin', mixed media heart! I love her copic coloring, the way she added texture to the flower heads with Crystal Effects and then added clear seed beads too. Oh yeah!"

Sanna says, "This card immediately jumped out of the gallery! So much happiness and fun, bright color and feeling here. I just had to pick this as my highlight as it immediately made me smile and feel happy!"

Becca says, "This card was so stunning with its bold pops of color and grungy, scrawling script everywhere. It's so happy and full of life!"
Shirley says, "Stefania. I love the vibrancy of this card - strong colours great images, and a brilliant sentiment!"

Yasmina says, "I'm really in love with Pamellia's design!! The colors, the style... everything is so beautiful!"

Maria F. says, "There is so much mixed media to love on this card, but it was the touch of humor that had me LOL."

Julia says, "Loll's thick shiny red letters are stunning against the black stenciling and stamping on her background."

Kripa says, "Ksenija Rizova's card stood out in my memory for the vibrancy and energy created by the clever use of arrows and other stamps and stencils."
