The Winners Circle #111: Use Only One Third

It's time to showcase our fabulous prize winner and runners up for Game # 111

We had the most wonderful gallery of the most awesome CAS cards we think we've ever had. Massive thanks to each and every one of you who linked up and made our job picking winners soooo difficult!

As this challenge theme was chosen by Lucie, she had the hard task of picking her personal favourite as the overall winner. One very difficult job, but here's her choice and the thinking behind it:

1st place

and winner of a Winnie & Walter $25 gift card - #5 Tiya-B
bee&tulip-hi

What an amazing gallery we had for this challenge - so much inspiration! Thank you all for sharing your talent - you made it sooo difficult for me to choose just one winner! I'm always drawn to cards with dry embossing - folders are such an under-used crafty tool nowadays but I still love them! Tiya-B chose an elegant colour combo and design which maximised the impact of the gorgeous tulip folder. The simple stamping in black ink provided the perfect finishing touch to this eye-catching CAS card. Beautiful. - Lucie

Congratulations Tiya-B,
