Top Picks #53 - CASE

Current challenge HERE.

Thank you to everyone who joined our CASE challenge earlier in the month! Sandie's clean and simple style inspired some beautiful works and I can honestly say that we had a VERY difficult time choosing our top picks for this challenge. Check out these stunning top picks:


Pia's text background is an inspired idea and gives a subtle back drop to her bright colors. We also love the gold embossed text on vellum!


Darnell did a wonderful job of grunge stamping that is softened by using watercolors and pastel colors. We also love the contrast of her bold sentiment!


We loved Pia's take on Sandie's card and how she carried her theme throughout the card. That star embossing is fabulous!


Congratulations to our winners! Be sure to grab your badge:

Challenge 54 - Designer's Choice and Design Team Call



This time we have a 'Designer's Choice' challenge for you - this is where one of our design team chooses a challenge. This sketch is the choice of the wonderful Shauna  who has been on the team since it started in January 2013, and who co-ordinates the 'top picks'.

This week we also have a fabulous Guest Designer Elaine.
Here's what she says about herself:

"I was honoured when I was invited to be a guest designer.  I wasn't sure that the right person had been chosen I thought maybe you had me confused with someone else!

I have been crafting for a lifetime.  I cannot remember a time when I wasn't creating something - sometimes more successful than others.  I dabble in lots of crafts from knitting and embroidery to cross stitch and sewing but my favourite activity at the moment is card making and other papercrafts.  My blog and entering challenges has become part of my crafting experience - at times they give the motivation (and reason) to get going and create!"

Elaine shows how versatile this sketch can be by creating  3 very different cards:



We will be choosing  a top pick/s from this challenge and inviting one entrant to join us as a Guest Designer. 

Here's what the Design Team did:
