Lesley's Pick's for FM#21!

Wow! What an awesome week at the Friday Mashup!  We were just BLOWN away but all of the participants and the various cards that were created for this week's challenge!  

I had a hard time choosing the Rockstar and Glamettes this many stunning creations to chose from.  I will start with the Glamettes!

Jean Mckenzie
I chose Jean's card because of the bold colour choice she made.  Using the Newsprint Designer Paper with Melon Mambo ink and black accents made for a striking card!  I also loved the clean lines and the way she maintained the simplicity of the sketch!

Joan Jeffery
I chose Joan's card because I loved the fun spider web she created with the Spider Web embossing folder and the glitter!  She also created SUCH a cute pumpkin from her oval punch, I thought that pumpkin was just the sweetest thing!

Monique's masculine card for her father was absolutely gorgeous! The sponged sky and the clever "crimped" designer paper made this card a stand out for me!  I also loved the colours she chose.

I chose Nancy's card because I loved the unique style she presented with this card! The colours are really pretty and the designer paper is so perfect for the sweet butterfly image!!!  Love this soft and pretty card!

And our ROCKSTAR for this week is......

What is not to like about Nina's card!  A monochromatic beauty, this card screams detail and effort!  The swirl of pearls, the French Script stamping, the simple clean layers all make this card a vintage masterpiece!

Thank you for stopping by and for playing along with my simple sketch last week.  Make sure to be back tomorrow to play along with us and a fun challenge from Kim!!
