It was very hard to choose because they all are great!!! But I chose Cassie T. because of the inventive way she used the embossed metal paper on the girl card and the nice corragated paper on the boys. These are the most fantastic teen cards I've seen.
Wow! Everyone did a fantastic job. Picking one set was difficult but I voted for Kerri's. I loved the coloring on all of her cards. The apples look good enough to eat and those little monsters jump off their cards. Finally, I liked that she did something different for the friend challenge.
I voted Kerri Michaud
Her style feels like she took into account every single detail possible. Perfect shading, stitching, layers, sponging. Yours eyes keep moving across and over the pieces, mapped out nicely but not too busy. Stunning work.
All of the cards are just amazing to look at, all 5 ladies did a wonderful job. It took me at least 15 minutes to really decide my vote. I vote for Amy, I love the color use, the bright colors on the cards just make it pop. I also like how she incorporates different textures to the cards.
I wish everyone Good Luck.
Wow...great job ladies! The quality of each card made the choice extremely difficult. I'm a fan of unique and different folds so my vote went to Wendy M. I loved how she used the space on the side step cards to make adorable little scenes. The Princess and Knights card would cast a spell on any little girl who received it and I can't stop looking at the Woodland Winter pair. The wide-eyed owl, the pink Christmas trees, and the mice sledding through the snow make me laugh! I love all of the elements, the placement and the colors...they're both wonderful!!
Decisions decisions, decisions like these are so difficult... Each of these ladies have put their uber talent and I know they are all winners... but I really like Kerry Michaud her use of colors and the matching tag and bag are stinking cute... best of luck to you all
What a horrible job to choose just one from such amazingly talented ladies! You're all winners with these spectacular cards. If I HAD to choose just one, my eyes gravitated towards Kerri's beautifully coloured - and colourful - pieces, so I'd choose her.
Good luck to all FIVE!
Though I haven't been following this due to health issues, I received a email to day that asked me to vote. So I just had to see what was going on and am so happy that I did.
Without a doubt. Hands downs my first choice is Wendy. Everything about her cards is perfection and what I like/admire most about her work is doesn't scream look at me, look at me. Your instead drawn to her cards because of their unique theme's and colourway.
I couldn't find anything about them that I didn't like...that would have made me go back and give the other cards a second look. Oh the lucky person to receive the Princess & Knights card...it's just adorable. The pink themed Christmas card is a wonderful change in colors and shows she is not afraid to go outside the box.
My vote is for Amy, #4.
She has a nice variety and has used a variety of techniques to make each card pop. I love the kite strings and the grass and the ruffled ribbon for water; great techniques. All of the ladies did a great job.
These ladies are SO creative and I loved seeing their creations. As did all the other voters, I had a hard time deciding who to pick I loved all the cards so much. I chose Amy because of the cheerful uplifting kite card and the two birthday cards being so bright and appealing to me. I loved all the embellishments she used.
