Winners #95

Thank you for playing along in the last challenge. There were 64 entries (1 entry was duplicated and not included in the count ) but I left it in as removing would have resulted in subsequent players numbers being out of sync.  
 I'm so chuffed that you all seem to like the new format of Spin the Butterfly Wheel.
 All of the entries were great and picking just three as Top 3 contenders was really hard  for me to do but after a lot of deliberating I have chosen the following

In Numerical order

(34) Shaz in Oz.
Shaz managed to get all 7 elements on this pretty composition. 

(40) Kavita.
I loved the pink/purple element on this card and the shadow stamping .

(65) Jane Savage.

Just loved this gorgeous box framed destined for Mothers Day. 


Congratulations to everyone. Please take a bow and help yourselves to the 
Top 3 Badge from the side bar.
