#142 Ellie

Glad lots of you joined in the Anything goes BUT cute challenge last month. There were so many gorgeous creations in so many different styles it was difficult to choose just 3
Christine (Craftyfield) finally settled, in no particular order, on:

#11 Emma's ATCs
Christine says: "I loved Emma's use of the embossing folders and the gold embossing. The collaged photos' Vintage feel looks perfect against the backgrounds too."

#60 Angela's Valentine's tag
Christine says: " I loved Angela design, with subtle variation of the colour red and repeated heart shaped motifs. The addition of the Angelina fibres gives a tactile touch and adds shimmer"

#43 Sarah with another Valentine's tag
Christine says: "I loved the background made with a mop up tissue layered on top of Mica sprayed cardstock. This builds up a lovely depth and the addition of stark black acrylic paint lines creates a striking contrast."

Finally Christine's special Mention goes too... (drum roll)...

Pat with her beautiful African Sunset scene !
Christine says: "First I admired how Pat managed to control the Brushos, as it's not an easy feat! Secondly the sunset was so believable I was transported to the African plains... The Sheena Douglass stamps looked so beautiful and realistic against the background they are now on my wish list!"
Fantastic work all around!  Congratulations - your badges will be on their way soon, and we hope you'll display them with pride.

And don't forget there is still plenty of time to enter our March Challenge Postcards (6x4)
