Melania covered her entire card base with a gorgeous plaid design before adding her sweet polar bear scene complete with a starry night sky. She then added her sentiment strip over her winter wonderland to keep the design similar to the sketch layout.

Today, we'd like to shine the spotlight on some awesome projects that have caught our attention in another edition of You've Been Spotted If you see your project featured, feel free to post this image on your blog and link to this post to show the world that you were spotted by My Favorite Things!
 

Julissa Padilla
 

Julissa combined the large Congrats Die-namics with the images from the Hello, Little One stamp set to create a darling baby card perfect for a new bundle of joy! She went with a monochromatic color palette that can easily be substituted for a baby boy or a baby girl.

Madeleine Palomaa


We adore the unexpected color combination that Madeleine used on her chef-inspired card. The vibrant pinks, purples, and blues are are a stunning mix of colors that really make her images pop on her design. The added brick background adds interest while perfectly complementing the rest of her scene.

Kay Norman


Kay created an adorable winter scene featuring the You Make My Heart Spin stamp set and designated it a birthday card rather than a holiday card, making it a great choice for those celebrating their birthdays on the winter months.

Lisa Bachtrog


Lisa designed a fun and festive scene by combining images from multiple stamp sets and making them all work together. We love the unexpected elements from the llama pulling a sleigh full of presents to the cacti nestled in the snow hills.

Dana Kirby


Dana created a holiday scene featuring the Tweet Holidays stamp set and used various images from the set to design her festive layout. The striped patterned paper adds a fun, colorful border to her card while the foam adhesive under all of the elements adds amazing dimension.
