Here are the designers' favourites in no particular order:

Bettina says: Love the pale pastel palette, that looks kinda vintage, particularly love the colouring of her eyes. Gorgeous details with the swirly leaves and beautiful flowers. 

Bonnie says:I love the fabulous colouring of this image with the high contrast of the shading. The sweet puffy clouds, the lovely bright butterflies, and those gorgeous flowers at the bottom make me smile.

Donna says: Love the gorgeous coloring of the image, especially the shine and sparkle of the balloons.  The beautifully textured white on white background makes the image just POP and the lovely embellishments are icing on the cake.  Fabulous!
Kyra says:  It is Rustic and Vintage. Love her Soft colouring, splendid flowers on the background. Black die cuts holds the things together so well. Well done!
Maureen says: So many gorgeous entries and so hard to choose just one! This white on white creation totally stood out for me, the incredible texture to the card - I just want to reach out and touch it! The image colouring is beautiful and I love the white puffy paint for the fur! Loving the different embossing on the background too! Fantastic - and not at all 'pants' as Chris suggests in her blog post!!!

Congratulations to our designer favourites!
