From left: Judy McKay, MJ Boumans and Carla Van Der Mei-Stolk. Congratulations Ladies!
Judy McKay – Canada
Judy’s card features a beautiful color palette of copper and blue which compliments her subtle coloring of the little bird. She has unified the whole design with dots, dots in the embossed background, dots on the blue frame and a finishing touch of dots on the central medallion. The birthday pun lends a touch of whimsy. Well done Judy!
MJ Boumans – Netherlands
When I first saw MJ’s card it made me smile! How charming is her vignette of the mother hummingbird feeding her babies in a teacup nest. MJ’s skillful cutting has animated the birds perfectly. Did you see the pile of broken eggs in the background? Well done MJ!
Carla Van Der Mei-Stolk – Netherlands
Wow is the word for Carla’s card! How clever it was to make an origami crane as part of the card. Inside is just as interesting with the stamped and colored origami cranes positioned just right. I love the torn paper element too. Well done Carla!
