Happy, Happy Birthday Card Challenge: No. 10

We had so much fun blogging about the Top-25 rated designs of the Holiday Spectacular that we thought we’d do it again for the Happy, Happy Birthday Card Challenge, Minted’s first ever greeting card challenge. We’ll be announcing one winner each business day until we reach the First Place design. Let’s kick it off with our 10th Place winner of $100, “Birthday Bloom” by Lena Barakat.

In her very first Minted design challenge, Lena snatched the 10th place with an endearing birthday greeting card that tugs at heart strings. Her flower illustration is sweet without a trace of saccharine, and her message brings to mind the mothers, fathers, grandmas and grampas in our lives who are embody the spirit of aging gracefully. It’s pretty darn impressive to nail a top-10 win in your first-ever design challenge, and we couldn’t think of a better way to welcome  a designer to the community. Congratulations Lena!
