Get Your Diva On WINNER

Hi Verve fans! It's Julee, popping in with the winner's announcement for our February Get Your Diva On challenge! There were some fabulous entries, which made the judging so difficult! In the end, I decided that several stampers deserved a little shout-out, so I've spotlighted them below.

After narrowing it down to those six, I spent hours deliberating on the final choice.  Each creation had a slightly different spin on the inspiration and they're all absolutely beautiful! But after closely staring at them all for so long, I kept coming back to one entry that had so much detail and style.

So the Guest Diva tiara goes to....

Janelle of Rain Puddle Designs!
I loved the way Janelle brought in both the soft aspects of the inspiration photo along with the shiny and smooth parts.  And that handmade crepe flower?  Seriously gorgeous!  And talk about details... the cream mat is scored, folded over, mitre cornered and stitched!  The silver accents on her buttons and the stitched zigzag border set everything off beautifully and that halftone dotted background deserves a closer look (and she just happened to have one on her blog)!  A gorgeous creation from start to finish.

Congrats Janelle!  I'll be in touch with you once we schedule our next release.

Thanks to everyone who played along!   If you didn't win this time, mark your calendars for the next Get Your Diva On Challenge... March 14!
