ShowCASe Week 296 Turquoise & Lilac

It's ShowCASe time 
and we have selected some real beauties for week 296.
Our chosen colours were Turquoise and Lilac which proved a very popular combination as attested by the wonderful entries submitted for this challenge
Thank you all!
Choosing is always difficult but we're sure that those selected this time are most worthy submissions.

A beautifully inked Christmas card using the challenge colours to create a non-traditional look for a traditional scene. Fresh, pretty and a super CAS layout. Well done Ann!

Lucie's card catches your attention immediately with its delicate detailing and shimmery colours. The gems around the sentiment that follow the line of the main die cut are a lovely touch. 

CASology Challenge, Less is More Challenge entries using Mama Elephant Honey Bunny stamps

Wendy squeezed loads of texture and detail into her sweet card, while still keeping it perfectly CAS. Never an easy thing to pull off, but this card proves that it can be done, and to brilliant effect. 

Congratulations ladies!
We'd love you to take our ShowCASe badge from the page at the top with our congratulations!
There's still a few hours left to enter this week's 'Dream' challenge, which ends at 10pm BST tonight, but should you miss this one a brand new challenge will begin on Saturday morning at 8am BST!

Week 297 One Layer Card

How quickly the weeks roll by, and it's once more 
This time our theme is 
You can be as inventive as you like, but please remember 

NO layers
Totally minimal embellishments
The image must be printed/stamped directly onto the card base!
The DT have some stunners to inspire you as usual and of course if you follow the links by clicking on their names, there are often additional examples to be found on their personal blogs.
They love a visit too!

If you ever find that you don't have a suitable sentiment stamp for any project, you can always create one on your computer. There is a tutorial for making sentiments using text boxes here
This was made some time ago using Word 2007.
Most of you probably now have a more recent edition of Word and in the 2010 version for example, to make the boxes transparent, with the boxes highlighted you click on Shape Styles on the top bar, when the panel at the side appears you click on Fill and then slide the transparency toggle to 100%
If there are any problems or questions you can always email us!
We hope you'll have fun!
