Here are the designers' favourites  for TEW Challenge #8:

#40 Lucy Patrick 

Bettina says: Love the layers with spotted embossing and the details with the flowers, clock, and butterfly. Absolutely gorgeous colouring, particularly the skirt of the dress. Amazing ;)
Bonnie says:  I am smitten with this fabulous patchwork background. The mix of patterns and solids, the variety of embossing, and the gorgeous colours create a wonderful backdrop which reminds me of farmers' fields. Love the colouring of Aurora and the way the flower clusters draw the eye right to her. Beautiful!
Donna says:  Love the card shape and how the embossing completes the underwater scene.  I'm a sucker for fussy cutting and dimension and this is fabulous and the extension of the images beyond the borders looks amazing.  She has even finished the inside with one of the stamps she's used on the front.  WOW!
Kyra says: How can I not Love Unky's Garden?  I love how Aurora is coloured! and the background clouds' embossing is so cute and appropriate to the theme. I love the little shovel charm she added it is so cute! Nice photograph as well! Well done Teresa! 
Maureen says:  This is a stunning card. It called to me as I was commenting and looking through the entries for this challenge. The black and purple palette is striking, the dies and shape of the card give interest, and the banner and flowers perfectly finish this card. I love the choice of image, the colouring, and the fabulous frantage style embossing. Gorgeous!! 

Congratulations to our designer's
