PP365 Challenge Winners

Hello everyone - Joanne here! In reading the many blogs I've visited it seems a number of you found my chosen colour palette perplexing this week, especially with the inclusion of the peach colour. However the gallery is testament to the fact that you all definitely rose to the challenge though and produced some amazing projects! Thank you so much for playing along and sharing your creations with us at The Paper Players.

Now, before we get to my choice for Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team this week.

 

And now for our Headliner:




Mona Pendleton - Cupcake's Creations

Mona's pretty twig wreath with its accent flower and leaves is simple yet beautiful. I love the subtle details - the natural cardstock, the pierced frame, perfectly positioned button and unfussy sentiment - and the way she uses large areas of the peach colour without it overwhelming the other colours or elements of her card. Congratulations Mona on being my headliner this week! 

Thank you again to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners, please pick up your badges here.  Please come back tomorrow for a Clean-and-Simple Challenge from Laurie!

PP364 Challenge Winners

Now, before we get to my choice for Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team.

 

And now for our Headliner:


Marianne






I thought Marianne’s card captured the essence of the challenge so perfectly. The richly layered bouquet of leaves in tradition autumn colors is framed nicely by the oval, and the texture of the twine bow is the perfect finishing touch. I also love all the different and interesting shapes of the leaves; I just can’t stop looking at them! Congrats Marianne, you are my headliner this week!

Thank you again to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners, please pick up your badges here.  Please come back tomorrow for a seasonal Colour Challenge from Joanne!

PP363 Challenge Winners

Oh goodness, sketch challenges are my favorite!  It is so inspiring to see all the different ways each participant interprets our sketch.  Many thanks to those that played along--it's always difficult to chose a winner!  Now, before we get to my choice for Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team.

 

And now for our Headliner:

Ingrid's card is so soft and pretty.  She beautifully highlights this stamp set and framelits with her vellum jar and the ombre polka dot background.  Perfectly balanced, she executed the sketch beautifully but made it all her own.  Congratulations, Ingrid, you're my Headliner this week!  

Thank you again to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners, please pick up your badges here.  Please come back tomorrow for a gorgeous Theme Challenge from Sandy!
