PBSC July - Anything Goes...Optional 'Nature'...More Inspiration!

Happy Saturday everyone! 

We're back with some more inspiration for our current challenge, and the announcement of the DT favourites from last month's challenge!


Here are the DTs favourite projects from June's 'Anything Goes' (Optional 'Spots and/or Stripes') challenge:

Helen B's favourite: #17 - Darnell

Helen says: Darnell's card really leapt out at me - her fabulous stamping has really brought that beautiful flower stamp to life!

Helen F's favourite: #23 - Bonnie

Helen says: Bonnie's beautifully coloured flowers add to her wonderfully elegant and cleverly designed card. 

Jenny's favourite: #34 - Cindy

Jenny says: Pink clouds - I love them! I also adore Cindy's adorable and beautifully coloured bunny. 

Kylie's favourite: #1 - Marina

Kylie says: I love that Marina chose a Kraft base for her card. This allows the striped accents to really pop! The little hedgehog looks so eager to get to the party!

Milla's favourite: #18 - Nonni

Milla says:I love everything about this card! The colour combination Nonni used looks amazing as does the whole design of the card, not to mention the beautiful Penny Black stamps she used which are brought to life by her lovely colouring.

Natalie's favourite: #30 - Robyn O

Natalie says: I love the golden tones and the soft inky effect on this card.

Sylvie's favourite: #26 - Mari

Sylvie says: Love this fun card...beautifully coloured!
