COMPETITION WINNER

Thank you very much for everyone who entered the competition. :)

The entries were all fabulous and it was great to see everyone making different cards from the same image.

We have had a very difficult time in choosing the winner - all the entries were gorgeous and brilliant ideas too. But there can only be one winner unfortunately. :(  
We decided not to make a short list but to look at each card with the layout and use of different elements.  And after a lot of deliberation and consulting between ourselves we finally decided that the winner is :-

Sylvia

Here is Sylvia's winning card :-

Thank you all again for your fabulous entries. :) :) :)
