A beautiful card in a gorgeous colourway. The clever design, pretty layered image, fabulous embossed corner and super faux stitching are all wonderful.

Fantastic Laying. Love all the beautiful use of color. Everything fits together so well.

Helen chose #83 Kym 
This is so well put together with lots of different elements and layers.

Carole chose #101 Leslie T
I just fell in love with Leslie's VW campervan full of groovy chickens. The dark and dramatic inky background papers make the colours pop and the flip flap greeting inside is the coolest. A fabulous project.

Robin chose #118 Kym 
Perfect masculine card for her son, love her color choices and could resist a blinged out hefty pup!!!

Koyel chose #122 Dreja 
Love the background work. And the dies

Dagmara chose #127 Crafting Stellalena 
Beautiful monochromatic colours. I really like the colouring and the digi stamp itself.

Danuta chose #144 Loopyloo 
An ingenious die-cut and fun little digi. The whole very childlike and cheerful. I love it.

Kelly chose #171 Katrina Bufton 
Love the grungy wire bird and the thread really sets this card apart!

Don't forget that the new challenge starts tomorrow.
