ShowCASe #315 - One Layer

Hi there LIMettes it's time for our weekly ShowCASe post.

You had us all smiling with your entries into our last challenge. What a creative bunch of people you are! There were some really stunning designs and such fantastic use of the challenge theme that it was so hard to pick just 3 people to showcase. 
 
Oh, and remember to pop back in early March to see if you are the winner from that challenge.

So here goes with our showcase choices, in order of entry for 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This is a beautiful take on the challenge. Simple design in black and white is just stunning.  Such an elegant design.
 
 
A super fun space card is a clever take on the challenge.  Trina made this one-layer card look dimensional with some beautiful shadowing!
 
 
Julie's sun and rain is a perfect design for this challenge.  Her use of heat embossing and watercolor makes this a lovely card.

Congratulations ladies and please help yourself to a ShowCASe badge
 from the page at the top of the blog with our thanks. 
We hope you'll display it proudly on your individual blogs.

We're sure you'll agree these are a wonderful trio and worthy of
our ShowCASe badge this week. 
Do pop along and congratulate them on their win.

We'll also be showCASing their cards on our Facebook page

so why not hop on over and give us a 'thumbs up'!
Here's the link you need to take you there.




As always there's still time to enter our current challenge 
 

which ends at 10pm GMT this evening before we announce
the new one at 8am GMT tomorrow morning.
