The Card Creations: Favorite Occasions Week Challenge Winners!


OMGoodness but there were some beauties in our Card Creations: Favorite Occasions Week challenges, friends! I don't know how a girl is supposed to narrow 300+ entries down to ten, but somehow I managed. I've got a lot to show you, and I know you are busy, busy, busy these days, so let's jump right in, shall we?

The winning entries for our All Occasion Card Challenge are:

Smile Card by Cristina

Moxie Fab Alert: On my moxie fab, Cristina! This card made me gasp when I first saw it! It is so simple with all that white space and so freakishly trendy with the use of all that colorful bakers' twine! You rocked it on this one, girlfriend!

Mama Said Card by Nancy M.
  
Moxie Fab Alert: This card just says it all, doesn't it? It doesn't need anything more than what it's got--and that's one moxie fab punch in and of itself!

The winning entries for the Birthday Card Challenge are:

Birthday Wishes Card by Chupa

Moxie Fab Alert:  Oh my shabby layers of birthday goodness! This card has great design. Notice how your eye goes to the center focal point which is the sentiment. Then, the heart pulls it to the upper left hand side. From there the ribbon draws you all the way to the bottom of the card where the leaves and rose bud in the bottom right hand corner draw it back to the center. What's even more? Nothing is wasted. Every element serves a purpose--to delight and inspire!

Happy Birdday Card by Laura O'Donnell

Moxie Fab Alert: How cute are these little guys? Laura has treated them perfectly by offsetting the background and letting them stand alone at the bottom of the card. In this case less is definitely more, and Laura has achieved a perfect balance of white space and sweet factor!

The winning entries for the Congratulations Card Challenge are:

Congratulations Card by Aga

Moxie Fab Alert: Oh, Aga! This is one watercolor-y dream of a card, my friend. Absolutely stunning!

Elegant Congrats Card by Amy Kolling

Moxie Fab Alert: Amy Kolling, where have you been all my life? This is so elegant, so delicious, so dripping with moxie fabulousness I can hardly stand it! I hope to see more of you here in the Moxie Fab World!

The winning entries for the Love Card Challenge are:

All You Need Card by Jane

Moxie Fab Alert: How cutie pie is this card? And could that sentiment be more true? And could it be hit home any more powerfully? Moxie love!

Forever Card by Tami Mayberry

Moxie Fab Alert: Besides its perfect balance and harmony in a moxie trendy color scheme, what I love most about this card is that it could so easily be given to a man. They are the ones we love, after all, and I'm not sure many of them appreciate all the girliness with which we love to design! ;)

And last but certainly not least, the winning entries for the Thank You Card Challenge are:

Musical Snowflakes Thank You Card by Regina Mangum

Moxie Fab Alert: Take a trendy color scheme, a moxie fab background, and some fun icons; pull them all together with a perfectly coordinated sentiment font and a fun little button, and what do you get? A card that is simply moxie fab!

Thank for Your Support Card by Julie Campbell

Moxie Fab Alert: Cutie, cutie, cutie! Punny, punny, punny! Me likey, likey, likey!

Linda Beeson said...

They are all fabulous but I just love the amazing simplicity of the Forever card, the colors are great.

Anne Thompson said...

"thanks for your support" would have to be my favorite card. It caught my eye because I have breast cancer and am undergoing chemotherapy, and it made me smile. There are so many people that have been supportive and helpful to me through this adventure and a card like this would be the perfect thing to send them. Anne, yourmainestamper

Sharon D from Canada said...

Oh my, what fabulous winning cards!!! Both congrats cards are SO gorgeous - love them both! But if I have to pick only one fav, it's 'smile' - I adore the happy rainbow of baker's twine!
