And now here are the highlights. The girls in the design team picked an entry to highlight. It's the entry that uniquely impacted us in some way -- a specific technique that was used, the colors, the creativity, or something in it that touched or impacted us.

Elina's highlight: #2 Robyn Oliver
Elina says, "Beautiful combination of soft watercoloured background and gorgeous stamped and layered butterflies."

Jenny's and Shirley's highlight: #24 Lee-Anne
Jenny says, "I love the dramatic look of the black flowers on the vibrant background and the touches of foil for bling!"
Shirley says, "I love the drama of the black-stencilled flowers, which make all the other colours really pop."

Julia's and Sanna's highlight: #30 Samra
Julia says, "Love the beautiful color on butterfly and bow and her touches of metal with word band and butterfly "arrow' body!"
Sanna says, "This card just jumped out of the gallery right away. I love the colored seam binding in combination with the beautiful pink butterfly. The background, the metal accents and the pink details work together so well. Such a beautiful card!!!"

Maria F.'s highlight: #39 Catchy Design
Maria says, "Deepti's card brought a smile to my face. Those butterflies tumbling out of the mason jar, how sweet. And those spots of bright colors, how cheerful."

Char's and Jan's highlight: #51 DeeZigner
Char says, "Absolutely beautiful colors, layers  and dimension."
Jan says, "Wonderful use of scraps and color to create many artistic layers of texture and dimension."

Deepti's highlight: #54 Yasmina T.
Deepti says, "A beautiful mix of colors and elements, love her card!"

Kripa's highlight: #64 LauraJane
Kripa says, "The lovely bright flowers are the perfect background for the kookaburra. The little hints of turquoise adds subtle contrast."
