Top Four 


 In order of entry

#27 Nancy

The simplicity of the leaf shaded so carefully and the mix of fonts in the greeting really caught our eye. As did all that empty white space and perfect placement of both elements too.

#48 Meghan

A row of pretty little leaves and a trio of greetings all placed so beautifully along the bottom edge makes this card a stunning example of a CAS One Layer card.

#50 Christine -

This card is simply just stunning. The diagonal placement of the greeting and leaves is magic! And so is that all important empty white space.

#56 Priyanka

Containing the greeting  and most of the sequins inside the wreath keeps this card nice and CAS. And how beautiful are those colours!

Congratulations to you all, please grab our winners badge to display on your blogs.

Our current Challenge #151 is One Corner + the optional twist of using a Colour Palette  and there is still plenty of time to get your entries in.

CAS Game #151 - One Corner + Optional Twist Colour Palette

Welcome to the next challenge here at AAA Cards. Our main theme is to use just one corner of your card front as the focal image. But with Halloween around the corner we've a super colour palette as our optional twist should you be so inclined. 


Here's the optional colours. We'd like you use two or more if you decide to go down this route. But please remember the One Corner is compulsory.




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

Our sponsor this fortnight is STAMPlorations for a $15 credit to their store.


Thank you STAMPlorations

Top Three
 In order of entry

#10 Donna

How fun! How wonderfully simple! How we love it!

#35 Trina 


Oooo love all that aqua 'white' space, so cool! And using the image as a letter in the greeting g not only looks amazing, but also doesn't infringe on the white space.

#41 Flourishtina

Although there are a few layers they are mostly flat and minimal in comparison to the vastness of the empty white space.

Congratulations to you all, please grab our winners badge to display on your blogs.

Our current Challenge #150 is One Layer + Autumn and there is still plenty of time to get your entries in.

The Winners Circle #148: Sketch + Animals

It's time to showcase our fabulous prize winner and runners up for Game # 148 Sketch + the optional twist of using animals.

And didn't you all make spectacular use of that oh so simple sketch. We were delighted to see so many amazing CAS cards in the gallery and had the toughest time ever picking favourites!

But it had to be done so here we go:

1st place
and winner of two digi stamps from Craftyscrappers is:

#21 Emily
How cute is that panda and how cheeky that sentiment! The simple colour scheme with the accents of lime green and all that fabulous open and empty white space made this card a top pick with the AAA Cards DT.


Congratulations Emily,
 please contact Jane with your details - aaacardchallenge@gmail.com

Top Four 

 In order of entry

#24 Izzy

We said it was OK to rotate or flip the sketch and if this is the result from doing that then we're super thrilled to see it done. Do I need to mention all that glorious empty white space?
#54 Sari/Granne

Well this lazing cat stamp could have been made especially for our sketch. The simple black and white colour scheme and smooth white space all make it a classic combo for a perfect CAS card.

#67 Cardogram

Just look at this pile up of cuteness! Perfect placement and a purrfect sentiment really caught our eye. Oh and of course that empty white space!

#78 Trina

Seems that panda stamp really appealed to us! So much going on in this little scene, but by keeping it all contained within one strip it still satisfies our CAS requirements.

Congratulations to you all, please grab our winners badge to display on your blogs.

Our current Challenge #149 is Up to One Third + an Inlaid Die  and there is still plenty of time to get your entries in.
