Hi there! Thank you so much for your feedback about the standing of all contest entrants! We have updated the post to reflect how everyone ranked in this contest. We updated the way we share winners in partner contests when our partner chooses the winner with our Southwest Baby Bedding contest, and it was an oversight on our part not to include the rank of entrants beyond the top ten. We are updating that post with the rest of the standing, as well. We so appreciate your feedback on this, and thank you so much for being part of the Spoonflower community!

Hi Laura and Ruth! Thank you both so much for your question. The Style Guide was provided as a set of guidelines to help folks understand what CWDkids considers a successful print for their pajamas. This was not intended as a set of hard and fast rules, but we wanted to clarify what our partners were seeking and would ultimately need from the winner. We apologize for the misconception and will be sure to state more clearly that this is the intention of the style guide in future contests.

Hi there! The Style Guide is in place purely as a guide, not meant to be restrictive but simply to inform what works best within the CWDkids brand aesthetic. It is meant to be helpful and provide inspiration. Once a winner is chosen, CWDkids will work with the winning design if it's necessary to tweak it for production (reducing colors, changing scale, etc.). We feel that the fat quarter preview provides a better context for how these designs will appear when featured in childrenswear. I hope this helps!

Thank you so much for checking in about this! We feel that given the larger scale desired for easily recognizable elements on pajamas for kids, a fat quarter view is most appropriate. If you check out the detailed images in the Style Guide (http://blog.spoonflower.com/cwdkids-style-guide.html), you will find a handy visual for the sizing of design elements, including photos of the finished pajamas for a more holistic view of the scale. Please do let us know if you have additional questions by writing help@spoonflower.com! Thanks so much!
