Welcome back, Fusion fans!  Geri here, with the findings from Challenge 17.  From here on out, Design Team members will take turns choosing Winners and Honerable Mentions for our challenges.  So today, I'm excited to share my own personal picks! (Although you gals sure made it a tough decision!)  I was looking for cards that not only looked great, but also clearly reflected the inspirations provided.  

For my winning card choice, the photo was the most successful element of this week's challenge experiment...

Congratulations, Shirley!

I really loved this simple, yet striking design!  The notebook edge on top of this lovely card is a sweet and unexpected touch.  And the placement of her gorgeous handmade feather on that pretty script background is perfect!  Simply beautiful, Shirley!

Congratulations to our Honorable Mentions...

Karen's use of the sketch with this striking color combo made for a beautiful card!  I love the subtle coloring of the bird, and her careful choice of embellishments that bring out all the right colors!

Our photo inspiration was a clear influence in this fun card of Jacquie's that was so nicely executed!  Her color combo is perfect for her nautical theme, and I love the dimension and interest she's added by raising the panel and little die cuts above the music background!

What's not to love about Chupa's use of the sketch?!  The colors look great together, and the elements of the little collage give it such a fresh and trendy feel!

Please grab the Honorable Mention badge for the challenge you won!

Thanks so much for your inspiration, Ladies!

Our new EXPERIMENT will begin at 12 noon EST today.
