Sketch and Color Challenge #70 – Winners

Thank you to everyone who played along with challenge #70!   We have winners…

Up first, the winner of the main challenge is participant #25, Katrina Bufton.  Katrina receives a $15.00 YNS Store gift certificate.

Next is the winner of the social media challenge, Jeanie of stampfoldandrepeat, who receives a $20.00 YNS Store gift certificate for tagging her card on Instagram.

Congratulations to both winners! Please contact Karen via the contact us link at the bottom of the site to claim your prize.


The Top Pick for the challenge is Mindy Eggen’s card featuring Cat Nap!

Mindy’s card caught our eye with the layered white on white patterns.   The banner making up one of the elements in the sketch works so well on her card.  Adorable and fun!


Challenge #71 is going on now.   Play along and we could be announcing you as a winner soon!
