Challenge Winners - A Study In Contrasts

Lisa Hoel asked us to highlight the contrasts of the changing seasons, whether with themes, colors, textures, or forms for the "A Study In Contrasts" challenge on The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog, and we were all delighted with the entries you submitted. Our Design Team to choose the layout that Michelle McDonald entered as the overall winner. Her lovely use of bright spring flowers against the grey weathered wood background, and the contrasting straight and torn edges were just right.
