Top  Four 

 In order of entry



#4 Carol

Corner placement is one of the designs that we love to see at AAA Cards. But the choice of a small image is also important and this one still has loads of detail and is beautifully coloured.
#7 Dena

Another glorious use of an inchie to confine an image and leave masses of empty white space. And just look at all the detail, awesome.

#26 Vicky

Just look how beautiful that stamped flower looks taking central focus. Love the sentiment too, a simple font with a deep meaning.

#30 Theresa 

A simple image, a simple colour scheme and perfect placement. A truly beautiful completely CAS card.

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

Our current Challenge #161 is  Along the Edge + Dogs & Cats and there is still plenty of time to get your entries in.

Hello!

Welcome to a new challenge here at AAA Cards.


We'd like your CAS cards to have all the focus along the edge for this challenge. If you'd like to twist with us then you can use a dog or dogs, a cat or cats, or a combination of both. Just remember they need to be along the edge of your CAS card.


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

The Winners Circle #159 One Corner + Love those Older Supplies

It's time to showcase our fabulous prize winner and runners up for Game #159

Thank you for all your gorgeous cards, our gallery was filled with the 
most beautiful cards and we had a tough time picking our favourites.

But it had to be done so here we go:

1st place
and winner of a Uniko instock stampset is:

#65 Conil

The twist for this challenge was Lucie's idea and she chose the winner.

I really enjoyed looking at all the entries and reading about the older supplies you used for this challenge. It was so difficult to choose one card but Coni's card kept catching my eye in the gallery! I couldn't believe that the image was created from rub-ons! So much fun to see rub-ons again! I love the subtle colours and the aqua butterfly - plus all that gorgeous white space of course! Thanks for sharing such a super card Coni!

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

Top Three 

 In order of entry


#18 Claire

The limited use of a die cut frame and those vibrant colours peeping out behind its corner placement caught our eye. The addition of a small butterfly and greeting doesn't impact on the empty white space at all and keeps this card nice and CAS.




Well how sweet is this card! And a torn paper square to display the image and greeting keeps everything sized down to leave that all important empty white space.


So much fun and movement on this card, not to mention the awesome colouring! And doesn't the frog sit beautifully in the corner?

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

Our current Challenge #160 is Maxi white space + metallics and there is still plenty of time to get your entries in.

CAS Game #160 - Maxi White Space + optional twist Metallic

Wow! 1st March already!

Time for a new challenge here at AAA Cards then!


Maxi White Space - what does that mean?

Well we'd like you to go search out those smaller images and sentiments and leave as much of your card front empty as possible.

Interestingly there's a Weekend Workout going on in our facebook group which may help you along with this if you struggle - only use one inch of your card front. Check it out HERE.


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

Our sponsor this fortnight is Pink & Main for a $20 credit to their store.

Pink and Main LLC

Thank you Pink & Main
