WOW!!! I’m just stunned, not only the number of entries we had, but also by the quality of your work! This is the biggest response we’ve ever had to a Paper Wishes Blog Sketch Challenge. Incredible job, ladies! I printed every single entry to share with the Paper Wishes team so they could see firsthand the creativity that poured forth!
