Congratulations,! Please grab your winner badge below to display proudly on your blog.

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 says, "I love the mix of burst purple bubbles and glimmery gems - and then to top it all off with an adorable kitten? Spooky & cute all in one design."

Melissa says, "This is a beautiful card, lovingly designed, with a gorgeous layout and perfect sentiment. The purple hues on this card are deep, rich and soothing. Autumn's style always make me smile or sigh contentedly. Here's another lovely example of her delightful work and for an excellent cause too."
Tenia says, "This card is just totally GORGEOUS!! That is all."

Sanna says, "This is such a fun card. I love the combination of the bold mixed media circle piece and the vintage background paper. It really works so well together and makes the little birdie really pop! And the card immediately made me smile too :)"

Maria F. says, "Just can't get over that amazing purple tone!"

Jenny says, "I love the way Taru has used the geli print. The print showing through adds great depth and the whole effect is dramatic."
