Featured Artist for Challenge #191!

Ah - a peaceful Saturday morning, and this Diva is thinking peaceful Baja Breeze thoughts while sipping her second (or is it third?) cup of coffee. There are TWO new boxes of Stampin' Up! goodies on my shelf just ready for some weekend play time.

But first - we need to recognize our Featured Stamper for our Sketch Challenge #191. It's none other than Lynn Hayes, with her gorgeous Baja Breeze and Whisper White Winter Wonderland.

I'm not quite sure where to start in sharing what we thought were the elements that make this a spectacular card. Just to start somewhere, you can't possibly not agree that the Baja Breeze polka dot print ISN'T polka dotted - it's definitely snow sprinkled! Just look at the snow on that cozy cottage, and you can just see all those snowflakes gently falling to cover the roof and the ground. Oh, and that glitter just adds to the serenity of the scene. A perfect winter's day!

Another beautiful feature of this card are those gorgeous trees with a spash of color that is NOT Baja Breeze. This is a time-honored technique to have a monotone design with just a touch of another color and Lynn carried it off to perfection. Another perfect accent is the punched snowflake. If we didn't know before that the paper was covered with snowflakes, we certainly do now! And I love the use of the Stampin' Up! Scallop Trim Border Punch peeking out from behind the central picture. Lovely take on that point of our sketch!

Thanks again to Lynn for being a part of this week's Diva Coffee Break Design Team Challenge! Be sure to visit her blog to enjoy all of her other fun designs!
