Inspired by "Inspiring Stand Outs" {Our Weekly Winners}

Thank you all so much for joining us this week at Inspired by #6!

We loved seeing how you were inspired in all of your creative projects. A special thank you to Kate Lorenzini for being our Creative Guest this week! 
Both Kate and I have chosen one stand out!

These are the two submissions that have earned a special Inspiring Stand Out badge this week. Please go ahead and display the badge on your blog!

Kate Lorenzini's Choice for Stand Out this week is:

Shona Chambers

I really loved seeing everyone's creations and getting to know many of you a bit better through your blogs.  I narrowed my favorites down to six and would choose each for very different reasons, but since we are asked to choose one standout, it's Shona's card, which I kept gravitating to.  Remember what I said about white space in my interview? I really am drawn in by all of the clean space punctuated by the circle, which seems to be die cut a bit off center so the bottom is somewhat wider, which I really like, as well as the use  of the wood grain paper.  I also like the movement Shona created with her tulips and leaves.  The sentiment contributes to the movement, as do the sequins, and the rectangle die provides some contrast with its angles.  I enjoyed the use of blue flowers and purple (after the blue-purple flower conundrum!), and would love to see an alternate version using yellow!  All around a standout in my book!   

Jeanne's choice for stand out this week is: 

There were so many beautiful cards this week it was so hard to choose just one!   I am so glad you joined us I can't tell you how much I enjoyed seeing so many different interpretations of the inspiration photo!  Honestly I'm drooling over more than just a few!  The one that I keep coming back to is this beauty from Elizabeth Stewart!  I love the wonderful scene she created using so many different die cuts!   I'm addicted to color and this one makes my heart happy! 


Congratulations and thanks so much to all of you who played along with us this week! 

The next challenge goes live at 5:00 am PST March 19.
