Our ATC Challenge Winners

We had some really wonderful entries for our ATC challenge.  A big thanks to everyone who joined in this fun challenge.  Unfortunately, there were some entries that we couldn't consider for winners' awards because the challenge guidelines were not followed.  Just a reminder to PLEASE read the challenge guidelines carefully to make sure your entry is appropriate for the challenge.  This challenge was to make an Artist's Trading Card but it also included a color requirement.

Among the beauties submitted was a gorgeous ATC submitted by Beverly at Gott Art and the design team has voted her card the Top Talent this week!

We loved the simplicity and open design combined with the beautiful sponged effect and vintage feel.  Nice work with the fussy cutting on the hummingbird too!  Congratulations Beverly!  We invite you to pick up the Top Talent badge from our sidebar.  We'll be in touch with you soon about being a guest designer for one of our upcoming challenges.  

The next three lovelies are all taking home the Talented Trio Awards.  

A very artistic trading card.  Anne's collage effect and the combination of textures really grabbed our eyes. Beautiful job of including a lot of fun elements without overwhelming the space.  The green really gave it a lot of zing and we loved the artsy quote.   

Sarah Engels-Greer at La-De-Dah
Nice use of muted vintage colors and fantastic layering on Sarah's ATC.  The torn edges with the printed layer showing through was a terrific effect and the red she used for one of the challenge colors really makes it pop.  

Desiree at Desiree at Play
Desiree's ATC is really lovely from the stamped image to the sweet sentiment.  We loved the hint of music peeking out from the side and the darling handmade rolled flowers.  Wonderful layering with beautiful punched edges too!

Congratulations ladies!  We're so happy you played along with Rebecca's ATC challenge last week.  Be sure to pick up your Talented Trio Award from our sidebar.

That wraps up another week of winners here at Our Creative Corner.  Our current challenge is a Girly Recipe Card.  We want you to create your sweetest girly card imaginable.  But don't forget, there is a recipe involved for your girly card too.  It must include 1) ribbon, 2) a handmade paper flower and 3) some bling.  You can link it up here no later than Friday, April 8th at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time.  Hope to see your entry and to have you back again with us for our new challenge on Saturday, April 9th.  Have a great rest of the week!
