It's time to announce the winners for our Choose Two challenge.

A huge thank you to everyone who joined us last week! We loved popping by your blogs to see what options you chose and how you used them in your projects. The variety of colours, textures and sparklies were stunning and made it difficult for the design team to pick a winner.

But the votes are in and this week our Top Pick goes to Lorraine A for her stunning use of colour.



Here is what some of the design team had to say...

Vibrant and lovely! The hint of gold foil is perfect.

Lorraine's colouring is so bright and vibrant, and I love the rich touches of gold.

Oh WOW! Just beautiful! So bright and colourful! Love it! 

Congratulations!
