CAS Game #117 - Geometrics

Hello! And welcome to a new CAS challenge here at AAA Cards. 

Before I go any further can I just say a huge thanks you to all of you who joined in with our 4th birthday celebrations over the last two weeks. We've been really touched by all the kind comments, it's so wonderful to have so many lovely followers and players! 

So on to today's challenge! 
For the next fortnight we'd love to see your CAS cards feature something geometric. DT Elaine chose this theme as it's a favourite of hers, so she will be especially delighted to see your CAS cards pop up in our gallery.



We'll pick a top winner and some runners up!
It could be you!

Our sponsor this fortnight is Uniko and the prize is an in stock stamp set of the winner's choice.

Uniko

Thank you Uniko!


As well as the 1st place prize from our sponsor we also offer the winner the chance to be a Guest Designer for a future AAA Cards Challenge.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Carol Gunn . Just check out her fabulous CAS card:


All that lovely empty white space keeps her card right on track for AAA Cards CAS definition. 

Awesome card Carol!

 Do pop over to her blog and leave her some love, she loves creating in a variety of styles and you're sure to be inspired.


Now it's the turn of the AAA Cards DT and they have made an exciting array of CAS cards to inspire you.  And look who's kicking us off with an amazing rainbow of Uniko geometrics!
