March Winners—We Have Two!

It’s Chark here today with the fun job of announcing our March Challenge Winner and our special Comment Winner from March.

As always, we love seeing what you come up with during the month to fit the theme and the March “Playing With Stencils” challenge was no different.

The card with the most votes was Linda’s colorful peacock card. The soft stenciling really brought the eye to the beautiful peacock. Congrats, Linda! You can see why this Color Layering Peacock stamp set is so popular in our store! You can claim your $25 gift code to the a2z Scrapbooking store by emailing us at a2zscrapping@gmx.com

Our runners-up, who get bragging rights and a blog button when they contact us at the above address, are three talented ladies. This challenge was a close-call and you can see why when you take a look at these projects.

Look at what Verna entered this month—this colorful flower and butterfly combo card…isn’t this just the very picture of Spring?

Next up is Maura with her bright version of the Color Layering Peacock stamps. The added bits, including black delicate branches and the yellow enamel dots on the tail made this one a top fave with our design team.

Our third talented cardmaker is Monika with a gold and black beauty that is striking and elegant. The little gold dots and the gold strip of paper really frame the gold stenciling on this.

One last thing, thanks so much for all your lovely comments this month, we enjoyed hearing your thoughts on our projects. And the winner chosen at random to win $25 to the store is Maura who left this comment:

Email us at the above address, Maura, to get your gift code!

Congrats to our winners and thanks for stopping by today! Don’t forget, we have a brand-new challenge for April and you can enter a project to try to win a $25 gift code to the a2z Scrapbooking store. The theme is Getting to Know You and we’d like to see your favorite Hero Arts product (stamp, stencil, die, inks, digi, etc.) on your project.

Happy Friday!
