Here are the designers' favourites  for TEW Challenge #12 (Beach): 

Bettina says: Lovely scenery canvas with gorgeous sea colours, mermaid and blue fishnet for texture. Love the effect with the bubbles and flowers too.

Bonnie says:  The colour palette and strong shading are absolutely gorgeous. I love the pattern mix and that yummy big cone. The band across the card with the borders and rich chocolate ribbon is an awesome element. Striking design!

 Donna says:  Gorgeous bright summer colors and fabulous beach scene she's created.  Especially love how Aurora is wading in the water and the uber creative way she did the waves with the little sailboat sailing by.  Her sun is hot, but Aurora looks so cool with her ice cream in her hand.  Cute pun in the sentiment too.  Love, love, LOVE!

Kyra says:  Love the mint colours with cool background papers and layout makes the card very loveable,  I love the sea shell around the quote and how the card stands!! Aurora helped me pick this card and she loved this too! xxx 

Maureen says: I love the scene she has made here! Like our Aurora has been chilling all day at the beach, with her !flip flops and shades and collecting shells. Love the colouring and fabulous pop up card style
