Starting the year off with two designs that really make Classic Blue shine, the January Design Challenge winners are:  
     
First Place - Liz Van Steenburgh of Startstock Greetings
https://www.greetingcarduniverse.com/birthday/flowers/classic-blue-birthday-ribb on-with-1598400
 
Second Place - Sandra Hess of Sandra Rose Designs  
https://www.greetingcarduniverse.com/thank-you-cards/help-support/other/donation -to-police-department-in-1597594
 
Many wonderful entries incorporating the color of the year in so many creative ways.  And a tight race with these top two winners separated by only 1 little point.  
     
Consider entering February's Stock Card Only Design Challenge:
