And here is the final posting in this series . . .
Blue Ribbon Winner #9:
A mix of texture and pattern was on the menu here . . .
As this is a very country-style State Fair, an image of a chicken and its namesake chicken wire ought to fit right in. And with a color scheme of Kraft, red and black, I thought this layout might be a winner. Evidently, the judges agreed . . .
And thus endeth my 7th annual romp through the Home & Hobby competition at our local State Fair. Winning nine blue ribbons for nine submitted cards is admittedly over the top, but I'll take it – it was a fun ride and I'm already looking forward to next year! But I think I'll do seven cards instead of nine; that ought to be enough, don't you think?
