Winners for Challenge #12

Thank you to everyone who joined us for last week's challenge! We were blown away by all the wonderful submissions this week! The Clean Team has chosen some talented Princesses for you this week and Jen has chosen her Queen!

The "Perfect Princesses" this week are:
Christy Q's choice
Tracey at My Creative Side

From the exquisite coloring on this little girl in the sweet treat cup filled with mica flakes to the handcrafted background, this card stood out to me from this week's awesome entrants. I just loved the colors that Tracey used to color in the sweet little girl and the little jingle bells that finish off the card. This card would certainly cheer up even ol' Scrooge this Christmas season! Congratulations, Tracey, on being my pick for Perfect Princess this week!

Rita's Choice
Jen at Simple & Sincere

For someone who is a bit tired of Christmas cards, Jen's card is truly a breath of fresh air. I love the mix of colors! They are so cheery and just perfect for a card with a gorgeous cupcake on it! The simple bow and the bit of dazzle from the glitter and rhinestone topper are a perfect finish to this fresh and clean beauty. Congratuations, Jen, on being my Perfect Princess for the week!

Lesley's Choice
Gayatri of Handmade by G3
I chose Gayatri's lovely card because I loved the bright, bold colours and the beautiful stamping she did. The flowers are just exquisite with the gemstones in them and the sweet sentiment looks perfect.  A great bow made from sheer ribbon sure added a lovely feminine feel to this wonderful card! Congratulations Gayatri on being a Perfect Princess this week!


Jen T's Choice
Nina at Notes by Nina

Another week of fabulous cards at Freshly Made Sketches and this card by Nina was a real stand-out for me. I am apparently in love with snowflakes (the paper kind) and this card uses them perfectly! Then you add the lovely little gems and wow! Snowy perfection! Congratulations, Nina, on being my pick for Perfect Princess this week!

Cindy's Choice
I loved this sweet card the moment I laid eyes on it. Renee used some special treatments to come up with a really lovely card for a new baby. First, I love the way she wove the ribbon through the scallop trim. The background stamp on the top layer is a perfect compliment, as well as her choice of papers, colors and embossing. Finally, those sweet little booties just make me say "awwwww". Congratulations, Renee! You're my choice for Perfect Princess this week!

Tui's Choice
Michelle Bala of My Passion for Crafting

I was totally captured when I came across Michelle's card this week, her clean and uncluttered styling lent itself to a simple and gorgeous design, from the beautifully coloured hanging bouquet and complementary patterned paper, to a contrasting decorative border with a row of classic pearls for the final touch! Elegant and oh so beautiful!  Congratulations Michelle on being my pick this week for Perfect Princess!

Another week and such a tough decision! I chose Pauline's baby card because of its wonderful paper piecing and combination of DSP. What a beautiful baby card! I love the concentric circles under the duck, and and addition of pearls to the punched ribbon. A gorgeous card for a new baby! Congratulations Pauline on being my choice for Perfect Princess!

Linda's Choice
Laurie at On the Bright Side

The non-traditional colors of this wintry card caught my eye right away! Pool Party is making a splash on so many holiday cards this year - and it always looks fabulous! The image is adorable and Laurie's coloring is terrific! The snowflakes are a perfect background making that cocoa so inviting! Congratulations Laurie on being my pick for Perfect Princess this week!

And Our Queen of Clean this week:

Jen's Choice
Allisa at Rocky Mountain Paper Crafts

It was so hard to pick a winner this week, but after much deliberation I chose Allisa’s beautiful snowflake card. I just adore the colors of chocolate and blue together and they are perfect to show off this gorgeous multi-layered snowflake. The dripping icicles only enhance all the snowy goodness. And what could I possibly say about that incredible rhinestone brad? Be still my heart! Congratulations Allisa on being The Queen of Clean this week!

Join us tomorrow for a sketch by Lesley.  Have a good night!
