Absolutely stunning card, with so many layers and beautiful colouring. What a fabulous way to multiply images!

Congratulations!
To claim your prizes please email tracy{dot}rich{at}xtra{dot}co{dot}nz

Our top 5 this fortnight chosen by the awesome Cass are....

 A wonderful example of how a black and white card can be very striking.  Great silhouette, the embossed snowflakes and music are beautifully matched to the diecut.  Wonderfully created.

I love the simplicity of this card, the use of stamps and diecuts is beautiful. I also like the use of the notepaper pattern.  Very creative card.

Beautifully designed, love the wide ribbon used on the card.  Gorgeous colour combo and I also like the little added touches, like the pearls added to the sentiment piece and the distressing.  Great detail in the design.

Being a big fan of Steampunk, I love the way Diane has bought in the feminine elements, the fancy lock, the silver leaves and hearts.  Beautifully crafted.

A beautiful layout,  pretty cluster, gorgeous embellishments with lots of details, from stamps to stencils. Great example of white space.  Love this layout.

Well done ladies AWESOME work!

Love the beautiful roses, the colour and shading give the petals and leaves delicate dimension.  The sparkling gold stenciled panel is the perfect background for this elegant card.

Love the beautiful colour palette and floral design, the woodgrain panel looks fabulous against the sea glass and black.  The card is finished off perfectly with the sparkling banner strips peeking out the edges.

What a fabulous Father's Day card!  Love the super cute fish with all the sparkling scales, the bubbles and waves of the patterned panels make for a perfect background too. 

WOW - we asked for sparkle and these wonderful wedding wishes are filled with sparkle.  Love the intricate sentiment panel, elegant design and the sparkling combination of silver and blue.

Ballet Shoes
Such a delightful image and coloured with pretty pastels too.  Love how the image panel is framed with the flowers, bow and butterflies.  Love the sparkle and shine of the butterfly gems and the blue and lattice panels too.

Well done ladies AWESOME work!
