Coni's card certainly won the hearts of all the DT members. How could you not fall in love with those rainbow colors? Notice how she used the Coffee Word die? And it's even a shaker to boot!


#12 Jane
Such pleasing colors and flow to Jane's card. Those enamel dots are the perfect touch to balance the die cut sentiment.

Can you say cute as a button and perfect for Halloween? That bright green is the perfect touch and nod to the traffic light colors of the inspiration photo.

Here's your winner's badge, ladies. Display it proudly!
