Thank you to everyone who participated in our July Challenge!!!
The submissions were fabulous, as always!!
I love to see what all you talented people submit, it's always so amazing. 
Everyone has such creativity.

Since all of the submissions were gorgeous and so creative, I think everyone is a winner. However I had to pick the top 3 and the grand winner for the month, let me tell you, this task is difficult each month, with all the talent out there. 
(Yes, I know I say this each month but it really is true.)

Vicki, this is a super smart looking layout with just the right amount of emphasis in your embellishments. Love the twine with the gears!

Donna Maligno said...

Barb, this card is so super masculine looking from the colors, to the textures and to the "bow tie" effect. Love it!

Diane said...

Both projects are beautiful and look how pretty they look those gears, too and Barbara the bow is gorgeous!!
Thank you for choosing my card as the winner...WOW..I greatly appreciate it...congrats to the other winners as well!!

I love-love-love Vicki's die-cut gears! Why haven't I bought them yet? This must be my next purchase! I also love the texture she made and Barbara's sentiment and cardstock. I like vintage and kraft stuff very much!

Hi, dearest OO (DeeDee)! I enjoyed our recent conversations and I had a little time to respond to your invitation, and use my wonderful CDB tool on my snowman card. I hope you like it - nothing fancy, but you will appreciate all the boo-boos on it. I am sorry for not leaving comment on the CDB blog every time, but the entries are always amazing, and I try writing on the designers' blogs. Hope you are doing well! xo
