#3 Simple art Craft

We loved the corner placement and simple colour scheme. A truly wonderful CAS card with plenty of empty non patterned non textured white space..

Using a strip across a card to place all the elements is another favourite way to keep your cards CAS. And such gorgeous colouring too!

The simple colour scheme combined with the stunningly simplistic image was a definite winner in our CAS eyes.

#2 Christine

We loved how Christine created the look of layers and textures by clever blending. The empty white space down one side is just perfect.



We loved Mugdha's stunning use of colour to create such a detailed little scene inside her circular focal point. Great placement too, leaving plenty of empty white space.


Such a super fun and vibrant card. We loved the 3D look of torn paper as the focal background and all the empty white space.

Cheryl's choice was:

1st place
and winner of a $15 gift certificate to STAMPlorations is:

#32 Ishani


A corner placement of the focal image is a great way to keep a card CAS. And we loved the added shadow to the heart which gives a fabulous 3D appearance.

Congratulations Ishani!

 please contact Jane about a Guest Design spot - aaacardchallenge@gmail.com

#10 Carol S

Oh yes I remember The Onedin line very well!  We loved how such a detailed little scene placed centrally still left all that important empty white space.


Another corner placement of the focal image - love it! And popping a die cut back into its aperture - an inlaid die - keeps everything beautifully CAS.


Movement created by a curved sentiment strip really caught our eye on this card. Oh and of course that adorable snowman image! The using about one third of the card is the CAS technique we admired on this card.


Another detailed scene kept beautifully CAS by its central placement leaving loads of empty white space all around. 

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

Our current Challenge #126 is  Moonlight and there is still plenty of time to get your entries in.

 We'd love to see how you interpret this theme and come visit your blogs,
