 Our gallery for our last Challenge #259 - Balloons was full of great "balloon" cards. Thank you for adding to our gallery.


Vicki was our hostess and had the task of determining our winners.

Vicki chose #3 Jane because she totally loved the technique used on the fun single balloon card. Unfortunately, we're not able to post Jane's card as she used Instagram and we haven't figured out how to copy and paste the card here. Click on the link above to see her great card. Here is your badge as our CAS Perfectionist.


Vicki's choice for the top three in number order are:

#8 - Claire A

#10 - Helen

The winner is #6 - kareN stampZ. I love the beautiful ombre ink blending, the pretty rain and all that white space!


Here is the winner's badge for you to display on your blog.


And now the top 3, in number order.

First up, #1 - Maria


Next, #3 - Jane

My apologies for not posting your card. Don't know how to copy your card here.
