Our winner from last month is........................................................

This is what Letraset had to say about it:

A very well thought out and balanced card with good use of typography around the snowflake. It just wouldn’t be Christmas without a little sparkle!

Congratulations Barbara, please email me here with your address and I will forward your prize.

Challenge 6..we want some guest designers

Well done to all of you finalists, we should soon have a winner chosen by Letraset themselves.

We do have a bit of exciting news!...every month we look through all your blogs at all the stunning entries you all have. We thought it a good idea to offer the opportunity of a monthly guest design team place to each monthly winner running for 1 month only...a great way to showcase some of your stunning colouring!

So..this challenge is a little different from the last few!!..we want to see how creative you can be so...there's NO SKETCH to follow simply a few guidelines:

We want to see some spots and stripes on your cards..these can be the main focus of the card or a simple accent, the decision is yours.

This will be the last challenge before Christmas, we re-start again on the 13th January, our finalists from this challenge will be announced on the 12th Jan so can all entries be on here by the 11th Jan.

Of course..another fab prize of a set of Promarkers and bleed proof pad.! (colours may differ to those in the photograph) get you all started, here's all of our inspiration to share.

November Finalists

We have all enjoyed looking through this month's challenge are such a talented bunch!
We have eventually come to our finalist decision, good luck everyone!

These are our finalists and our reasons why we have chosen them.

Barbara 4 DT votes

"Barbara's colouring looks fantastic on her card and she has finished her card off beautifully with a gorgeous snowflake embellishment"

"I loved Barbara's card, you could see she had enjoyed using the sketch from the finish card which was well colour co-ordinated, using lovely little extras like the charm and the fact she had gone to the bother of photographing all the colours used on her card shows how she layered the colours up to achieve a beautifully coloured image"

"I picked this card for the beautiful colouring of the bears, such a sweet image and lovely card"

"It looks like a lot of work has gone into making this card. The colouring is very good, the snowflakes are fab, and there's plenty of sparkle. The charm is also a nice touch."


"I like the simplicity of the colouring, the embossing on the background squares and think the added embellishments make it a really fun card"

Keep checking back for the announcement of the winner!
