Just Add Ink #294 ... Winners


Hello and welcome to the Just Add Ink winner's post. What a fabulous response we had to our Just Add Something New blog hop. Thanks so much for joining in with us and sharing your creations and thank you too from the JAI design team members for all the wonderful comments.

It really was a challenge to narrow down all our entries to just one winner and two honorable mentions; however, we did and this week the winner we settled on was Lou Kitzelman for this stunning flower easel card (and you should check out the very creative fishbowl card too!).


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

Fantastic cards. I love the easel with that beautiful eye catching flower.

Such a gorgeous glittery flower, and a fabulous fancy fold to boot!

I love how the layers create great dimension on this Easel card.


Congratulations!


Here is your badge to wear on your blog.

To celebrate the start of the year we have the pleasure of sending out some prizes, donated by the design team, to our winner and honorable mentions.
