Our First Challenge Winners!

Well it seems you all liked the idea of us running a monthly challenge - we had 39 fabulous entries in total and you really gave us a headache when it came to picking a winner!   As I said, the winners will be chosen by the DT and will be awarded on merit not random draws, so we came up with a scoring system and each person awarded a "gold, silver and bronze" to their favourite designs which gives us a fair points based score to work out our winner and runners up.

So without further ado - our winning entry this month was Sarah G with her beautiful CAS rainbow design.  We do all love a rainbow and the subtle way Sarah inked around the edge of a circle to draw the eye into the sentiment was just perfect!   Sarah you win the £15 store voucher which may well come in handy this week as we have lots of lovely new goodies about to clear customs!

Narrowly missing out on the top spot this month is Julia with her 5th entry to our challenge with these amazing cards where she totally rocked the chalkboard technique with the perfect burst of colour against the dramatic black background.  We only award prizes to our top entry each month but you do get a lovely "winners badge" for your blog if you would like it - please save it from the bottom of this post.

And last, but by no means least, our second runner up this month was Jill with this right on trend watercolour background which sets off the gorgeous new sentiment from our newest brand Neat and Tangled.   Again you get to take the badge below to show off the fact that you're a winner.

We'll be back with a brand new challenge on Thursday - from now on challenges will start on the 1st of each month and run for 3 weeks with new inspiration from our talented design team each week to remind you to enter.  There will be a £15 voucher for the winner every month.

Congrats, Sarah! Your card is so beautiful, you totally deserve the first place! Congrats to Jill as well – love the background and I can't wait to get my hands on the stamp as well :)

And thanks to the entire challenge team for picking my card set for the second spot – so honored, considering the great entries for the challenge. Looking forward to what you come up with next!
