Congratulations to Whitney Fuertes of Tolleson, Arizona! She is the winner of our 5th Annual $10,000 Create-A-Greeting-Card Scholarship Contest! Whitney is a senior at La Joya Community High School who plans to study Nursing in college. She has created a beautiful hand-drawn work that depicts a Nativity scene under a night sky. Whitney submitted a design that is 100% original and unique, and we can’t wait to see the finished product! Our judges had a tough decision to make as there were so many outstanding entries in the finalist pool, but we think Whitney’s design will make a truly amazing card.

Here is the design Whitney submitted:

Wow! What a great looking drawing, you are definately a talented person. I can’t wait to see the final card, I bet it will have a touch of classy foil printing to make it really stand out! This design will definately be on my final list for my Christmas cards this year.

What a great drawing! I don’t know if I could draw anything yet a beautiful depiction of the nativity scene. Great job!

Thats a nice looking card. I like the detail in the clothing of each of the people depicted in the drawing.

I’m surprised a pencil drawing was selected as the winner, but I can see how this piece of artwork can be turned into a really nice card. Add some color, a little foil, and voila! Lots of detail to work with here.

This is an excellent contest and I love the card chosen as the winner. I’m very pleasantly surprised that a religious card was chosen as the winner. Too often today our society fears promoting religious beliefs and I’m happy to see that The Gallery Collection did not let this influence their decision.

Beautiful drawing. I can’t wait to see what the final card looks like. Who knows, maybe that will be my card to send out :)

I looking forward to see the final card as well. I wonder if foil embossing will be used on the card?
