Just Add Ink #271....... Winners

Hello and welcome to the Just Add Ink winner's post.

Narelle's sketch was clearly a firm favourite with everyone this week. I can certainly see myself using it again!  We had so many fabulous entries that it was a real challenge for the design team to pick a winner but this week we settled on Deanne (Three Trees) for this sophisticated monochromatic card.




Here's what some of the design team had to say..

Super-elegant card.  I love that it is crisp and clean, with lots of visual interest in the layers.

Love all the beautiful edging to each layer.

So much detail in every layer and I really like all the little stitching details too.

Congratulations!
