Results of Challenge #452


Let's plunge straight into the top picks for Challenge #452, in numerical order - but first we have a *Gold Star* entry:

Kathy A raced in just before the Playground gates closed and just one look at her card told me it was an absolute 'Gold Star' entry. Tons of beautiful snippets, beautifully designed and executed - and so striking. I LOVE it!

It's such a delight when Lesley comes to play with us. Her cards are always gorgeous and I chose her as a pick because quite clearly there's a lot of work here - and all with snippets. A lovely card and let's hope it's a sign of Summer being on the way!

Oh, Lynne in NI - the way to my heart is through the colour pink!  What a lovely card this is, wonderful design and absolutely perfect! I do love the clever use of the trellis behind the very pretty flowers too.

What a great view from the window on Vicky's card! So clean and crisp and the view! Such a clever idea and to find out just how it was done you need to hop over to Vicky's blog - although I will spoil it a bit and say that your really ought to hang onto magazine images with nice background views!

And, I absolutely could not cut down my picks to just three (plus the Gold Star by Kathy) this time. And so, last but not least, we have this great 50th Birthday card made by Valerija. A lovely card, beautifully designed and made - with plenty of snippets. The thing that really struck me was how Valerija picked up the background paper with the number 50. It ties the whole card together so well!

Please take your badges for your blogs. Gold Star and Picks - if you wish of course - from the top bar.

It gets more difficult to choose the final picks as time goes on. We have some fabulous and really well thought out snippets entries, not easy to choose as I found this time. Although, at times there are huge contrasts between cards which have been made with snippets in mind in the spirit of the Playground and those which are 'Oh, why not, I'll also enter it into the Snippets Playground'. It stands out a mile folks and is noticed! Only sayin'. 😒

The randomly drawn winner of the embossing folder and two sets of dies from The Works is:. 
To claim your prize, please send an email using the Snippets Playground email address shown on the RH sidebar, with PLAYGROUND WINNER (or similar) in the subject line. Please add your FULL NAME above your home ADDRESS so that I can copy and paste it for speed and ease.
