200th Challenge Winners!

 Hello,

Thanks everyone for playing along with us over the past couple weeks for our 200th Challenge Celebration! The gallery was full of bright colors and indeed looked like a celebration!  Picking two overall winners was not an easy job at all!  I asked my teammates for assistance as the task was so very hard. 

Remember in order to win ANY of the 6 prizes you had to play along and leave a comment on each one of the Design Team member's blogs.  

Let's go see who the Winners are!


Congratulations!

I was so impressed with Ana's border, butterflies, and sentiment.  She took the colors of our graphic and displayed them so creatively!  This is a stunning birthday card!

and
I love all the time she took to create such a wonderful array of
balloons. She managed to capture all the tones in our graphic too. The ribbon and sequin bow adds nicely to the celebration.  

You both managed to "Take the Cake" this week!!

Please contact me (Nancy) at Wer4art@aol.com to claim your 
Simon Says Gift Certificate!

We hope you will enjoy your Winner's Badge too!
