WINNER OF OUR JANUARY CHALLENGE

The winner of our January Challenge is…. Anna (bbepxdnombimbom)!

Anna’s wonderfully layered poppies against the stark navy blue contrast of our Freestyle Stripes was an ultra elegant play of colors that contrasted beautifully together.  I loved the proportions of the poppies and stripes against each other and they came together to create a striking layout.

Congratulations, Anna! Please email us at thetonstamps@gmail.com to claim your gift certificate and details on being our guest designer for our March Challenge!
