Congratulations to the Winner of Paper Lane's

Hello, everyone!

Paper Lane’s first challenge ended on 12 May 2012 and it’s time for the results! So here I am today to announce the winner and my Top Three!

Before that, however, I would like to thank personally all the crafty and brave ladies who took part in our first ever contest and shared their beautiful and sparkling cards with us!

And now, the winner is... :

Shayma Mohamed !!!

The card grabbed me straight away with its clean and elegant style. The colours are so soft and balanced and the butterflies are just the glittery accent that finishes the card oh so nicely. Well done, Shayma ! Enjoy your prize and share with us what you’ve created using it!

And here comes  my Top Three for this challenge:

1: The elegant sparkling card from Dolly Myra Zai Sham.

I absolutely loved how Dolly created the snowy effect on the horses feet with some white glitter powder. Great idea that looks so real. The pearlized Prima flowers also add a nice elegant touch.

2: The super cute mouse card from Swati Jain.

Swati used so many techniques here – a fun fold for the card base, heat embossing, some creative inking, Copic colouring and even a hand-made flower. Not to forget the perfectly glittery touch on the coloured flower. Really great job!

3: The bright and sparkly card from Tuba Anwar.

Beautiful strong colours and lots of glitter! Sweet!

That’s all from me for now. I hope this first challenge has motivated you to keep creating and sharing. After all, that’s what card making is all about – create something beautiful and share it with others to bring smiles to their faces!

Make sure you keep watching this space for the next Paper Lane challenge and in the meantime don’t forget to save June 2 in your calendars. Why? Because a great scrapbooking workshop is coming you way and Paper Lane has prepared many exciting offers, especially for you :).

Happy crafting,
