We've got the winners!

Hello and happy Wednesday!
I cannot believe the awesome response that we had with our first challenge - the fact that so many of you decided to play along and support our new venture, is truly heart-warming.
I'd like to thank all of you, who made the first week so very special for us. I hope the list of participants will be ever growing! :)

All your creations were spectacular, and I loved the way you picked up different aspects of Makiko's card. It was a hard decision, to choose four projects to highlight, but I finally settled for these beauties...

Our winner for CSC01 is Lynn from The Mango Boys & Me!!



How cleverly Lynn chose the colours from the inspiration, and designed a completely different card around them! It's beautifully whimsical, clever, and look at all this fun stitching...
Congrats, Lynn!
