What great creations you all submitted for challenge #75!

The winner of the main challenge and a $15.00 gift certificate to the YNS Store  is participant #4, Julene!

The winner of the social media portion of the challenge and receiving a $20.00 gift certificate to the YNS Store  is Trina Pham.  Trina shared her creation on Instagram where she goes by craftingclosetcreations.

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 a familiar name…Trina Pham!   Trina’s card featuring one of the monsters from Silly Birthday Monsters uses the color combination from the challenge.

Clean and cute, cute, cute is the description for this one.  With the rays of grey in the background and bright orange balloon, Trina’s card is perfect for a boy or girl.
