Back to Nature Pinworthy Winners

Hello Creative Travellers!

Jennie here with you today to announce our three chosen Pinworthy winners for our Back to Nature Challenge last month.  The challenge theme prompted some wonderful submissions and we thank you all for joining in and sharing your creativity with us.

Selecting three pinworthies is very difficult and we always have difficulty in narrowing our choices down to just three winners. So after much deliberation these are the three projects which really caught the eye of all of us:

In no particular order:

Two beautiful but very different cards. We loved the gorgeous subtle neutrals of the wildflower meadow with the tumbled leaves and also the vivid colour tones of the leaves against the wonderful inky spattered background.

A fabulous Autumn wreath with the most glorious texture, dimension and colour. The beautifully embossed, inked and stamped background is stunning too.

A very unusual exploding box with stunning Autumn embellishments made from polymer clay.

Congratulations to you all. 
We will be in touch shortly with your badges and your creations will be pinned to our Pinterest boards.

Thank you again to all of you who joined in the Back to Nature Challenge. We hope you will join us this month for Sara Emily's fabulous Autumn Splendour Challenge. All the details and inspirational projects created by the Creative Guides can be found HERE.

Have a great weekend!
