One random participant will win a $15.00 gift certificate to the YNS Store, plus if the winner uses YNS products on their creation they will receive an additional $5.00 on their gift certificate.  We also select our favorite creation featuring YNS products from all participants and announce a “Top Pick”.   The random winner and “Top Pick” will be announced on the YNS blog the Sunday following the challenge close.   Link up a picture of your creation from your blog, gallery, etc. at the bottom of this post and you will be entered to win.

The main challenge winner and recipient of a $20.00 YNS Store gift certificate is Allison Arbour!

The social media challenge winner and recipient of a $20.00 YNS Store gift certificate is Moje Veselje who shared her entry on the YNS Facebook page.


The Top Pick from the challenge is Allison Arbour’s card.

Allison’s creative take on the sketch is fun!  The patterned paper and sentiment work so well to make up the strips on the sketch.  Allison even managed to pull in colors from the color combo in the challenge.
