PBSC December - Anything Goes...Optional 'Winter Wonderland'...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 November's 'Anything Goes' (Optional 'Bingo/Tic-Tac-Toe') challenge:

Helen B's favourite: #17 - Helene
Helen says: I love the atmospheric colouring of this beautiful winter woodland scene on Helene's card - just beautiful!

Jenny's favourite: #34 - Maura
Jenny says: I love the gorgeous non-traditional colours and the beautiful water-colouring!


Kylie's favourite: #16 - Julie B
Kylie says: Just wow! Julie's example of no line watercolouring is stunning. The colours and depths achieved are brilliant and the embossed sentiment is perfect. Love this card!

Lorraine's favourite: #14 - Bonnie
Lorraine says: I love the pretty poinsettia and Bonnie had coloured this one beautifully. The cas design is perfect for this stamp.

Milla's favourite: #24 - Bonnie
Milla says: Bonnie's card is stunning! The clean and simple design highlights her beautiful flower so perfectly.
