September Stash Winners

Hello fellow Christmas crafters! It's time to announce the winners of our September Stash Challenge: Diamonds and Pearls. I have to say, the entries were, sparkly, extravagant, elegant, truly magical and undeniably festive. Well done, ladies!

With so many marvellous makes, unfortunately, selecting winners and runners-up led to a bout of mud-wrestling between Design Team members. But in the end the spirit of Christmas prevailed. We shook hands, hugged and decided on the following:
