    All of these contest entries are wonderful, but I am most drawn to the artwork submitted by Fonda Rush! Beautiful, subtle but eye-catching color combinations with just the right amount of shimmer, gorgeous designs, and the use of the ribbon is perfect! ( I *need* some of the ribbon she used!) I would love to see more of this artist’s work!
