Challenge #167 Winner 

WINNER of  3 IMAGES 
FROM
Scrappers Delights

FRANCESCA of  Un Arcobaleno di CoLoRi
The amount of detail in this project is amazing.  Even more amazing is how well the design is organized.  Each element occupies it's own space without being a distraction to the rest of the design.  Most of all, the focal image is not lost!  Beautifully conceived and executed!

MARJUT of Mallu Näpertää
Stunning collage and fabulous treatment of this awesome image!
Sometimes, Less truly is More!  We love Birgit's Design Point of View.  
Her projects are always clean, well organized, and beautifully executed!
Don't those eyes just draw you in?  This image is not a digital image, but rather an illustration that she colored with Copics.  Fabulous color integration and a very well balanced design.  Great ATC!
Who wouldn't want to receive their Keurig Pods adorned with this fabulous Belly Band and Gift Card holder?  This design has wonderful lines and the color integration is flawless.  Pulling colors from the GC and using them in the design was a great decision and helps elevates the design.
This is one of my all time favorite ADFD images.  I like the modesty panel that Elena added to the back of the dress.  Beautiful coloring and perfect embellishments.  Elena has mixed hard and soft colors and textures and still maintained the aesthetic appeal of her design.

Honorable Mention
