Folks! We had 115 entries - 115 truly outstanding entries and it took us 4 days to evaluate them properly and we're happy to say that we have chosen our winners. The challenge was to Keep it Simple and Sweet so the winning creations are the ones stayed true to the essence of this diktat.
So without further delay our two winners are - Hussena for this gorgeous single layered creation and Anusha Vamsee for her gorgeous embossed/ distressed card. We are totally in awe of your work! Hussena - by just stamping and coloring, you have captured the KISS challenge perfectly and the overall look of the card is just fabulous. Anusha, the level of technique you have displayed by shading the embossed detail is mind-boggling and you kept it simple with just a single flower!
