Our winner for CSC36 is Allison from Your Memories with Ally!!





Allison took the elegance to the whole new level, with this stunning card. I love how the boldness of black contrasts with the soft pink of the papers and flowers, love the embossed sentiment and beautifully coloured image. This card is sure to impress anyone!

Let's meet the winners!

Well, let's say that I knew that we're going to have a pretty high attendance this week... Silke's style is so appealing, so charming and utterly gorgous, there was no doubt that many of you would jump right in at the opportunity to CASE one of her creations :)
The gallery was brimming with all sorts of paper wonders, and I was tempted to make our Top 3 into a Top 5, but in fairness to the rules set, I settled down for these jaw-dropping beauties:

Our winner for CSC34 is Julie from Stamps and Taxes!!





This is perfect in so many ways, that I don't even know where to start... The colours and patterns for one - the hint of black against the dreamy background makes up for an amazing effect. The flower. Stitching. Big fat bow... Oh my!!!
Congrats Julie, you outdid yourself g/f... if that's ever possible! :)

Our Top 3 winners are:



Nicky @ Craft~Coffee~Cat
Christina @ Sea Glass & Sentiments
Maureen @ Buttons & Bling

Congratulations, ladies!
I hope you'll take time to visit their blogs and leave them some love :)
Winners, feel free to grab your badges (right click & save onto your computer), and wear them proudly!

The winner of three digis of winner's choice, from The Stamping Boutique is...



That's you, Suzi!! Please contact Christy at micahzane(at)yahoo(dot)com, with your choice of digis :)

Congratulations again to the winners, and thank you all so much for playing with us! Tomorrow brings a new fabulous challenge, please come again and join in the fun!
