The Goodbye 2020 challenge gallery is filled with creative new year card ideas.  All of the members each week are so very talented and inspiring, the galleries are filled with fun techniques, designs, and ideas! 

One of the winners of the Goodbye 2020 challenge is this beautiful card from Rosemary
Her card is such a fun interpretation of the challenge and is so beautiful with all the silver and her awesome clockface. 


As one of the winners of this challenge, you have also won this wonderful prize from  DT Michele.  Please see the sidebar to email Danni your email information so we can get your prize to you.

Since this was a two-week, end of the year challenge, we wanted to choose two inspiring cards.  The second card selected this week, is this awesome card from Kate.  Her card has so many beautiful layers and her "faux embossing" adds so much.  This is such a beautiful card to welcome 2021!

As one of the winners of this challenge, you have won the stamp set below.  Please see the sidebar to email Danni your email information so we can get your prize to you.

Congratulations Rosemary and Kate!
