June Guest Divas

Happy Friday! Today I get to announce our two fabulous June Guest Divas!

First up is a stamper I've been hoping to work with for quite some time...

Christina Fischer has a gorgeously finished style with a great eye for unique color combinations and beautiful embellishments. I find myself drawn to her cards whenever I'm out bopping about SCS and the blogosphere. I'm honored to have Christina put her fabulous spin on my little stamps. Welcome Christina!

Joining Christina is the winner of our Special Guest Sketch Contest.

There were some outstanding entries in our contest and I had a lot of fun cruising through all the links to pick my favorite card! Thank you to everyone who participated! I've included a slideshow of my top ten faves at the end of this post. I'm sure we'll be having more contests like this in the future, so don't lose hope if you didn't get selected this time! Okay, time to let the cat out of the bag...

The winner of the contest and our June Special Guest is:

Kerri Michaud with this gorgeous card!

I simply loved the way Kerri combined the stems from Miracles Blossom with the flowers from Wishful Elegance. And the whimsical way the outer flowers extend beyond the edges of the panel just seems so carefree and happy. Added details like stitching, the Swiss Dots embossing on the horizontal strip and the sparkles and dimension on the flowers really took this simple sketch to another level. I emailed Kerri yesterday to make sure she was up for being a guest and she said a resounding YES! So congrats, Kerri! We can't wait to work with you for the upcoming release.

Okay, now for the slideshow of my top ten faves from the sketch contest...

Okay, we'll have another special announcement on Monday so be sure to check back! Then our June Project Parade will start on Friday, June 5 with all new Diva creations!
