"Both cards are great! Love the Halloweenish look of the 1st one."

And wow!  There were 322 cards submitted for our World Card Making Day Release Week Challenges!  Holy moly, you gals were stamping up a storm!  I looked at every single one - but unfortunately I couldn't comment on every card.  I've got tendinitis in my wrist and it's sooo painful to type.  Your creations were absolutely gorgeous and it was so much fun seeing everyone's take on the sketches.  So with out further adieu, here our are winners.  The randomly chosen individual sketch winners each win a $25 Verve gift certificate.  And the grand prize winner wins the whole Autumn 2010 Collection!
