Thanks so much for liking my holiday submissions - I was thinking the same thing about yours! You have such a fresh, modern, yet still warm, approach to all of your designs, and I know you're cards will resonate well with the Minted customers!

Congrats on your big win! I love the contrasts in your art. This may not apply to you but I'm wondering if your art used neon paints. When I scan in my paintings that used fluorescent paints those colors aren't picked up by the scanner. Just wondering if you knew of a way around this. Thanks in advance :)

Hi Kristy, I regret that my design "Half" has the same colorway and dot backer as your entry. If I had known I would have submitted it in different colors. So sorry. It was an innocent coincidence. Suan

lol. !thanks... not sure if I should keep it. It cracked me up this morning, b/c my family is polish (wemple is my married name) and my cousin just announced that she is having a big fat polish wedding next year - so I had to do this for her. Not sure if it's one those things that only a few people find amusing though ;) ps - you are KILLING it in the challenge - seriously awesome!!
