One Layer ShowCASe Week 215

Another round of gorgeousness today with our 
One Layer Showcase
Some 'animals' were more insect than animal, but nevertheless some delightful cards emerged!
Here are the picks of the week
Simple, fun and beautifully coloured.

Beautifully coloured with watercolour pencils... such a good idea for one layer cards as there is no bleed through of colour on the inside of the card.

What a great effect of this fabulous horse leaping from the water.

Please take your ShowCASe badges from the page at the top and we hope to see everyone for a  fun challenge starting tomorrow!

Week 216 Theme

This week our 
is for you to choose one of the DT cards and CASE it!
We would like you to say which card you have chosen and if possible add a pic of it to your blog stating how you approached your design. 
You might follow a similar layout, colour scheme, subject matter or simply do a close copy of it.
Here they are for you to choose from.

Ok so it's a shaker card which can still be CAS - yeah!
If you decide to CASE my card I'd like to see:
Lots of 'white space' obviously but then you might like to use
embossing, shakers, colours, dies or go with a wedding card. 
I can't wait to see how you interpret my card. 
The main thing ... have FUN!

Card Recipe:
Clearly besotted: Paired Up sentiment & dies set plus word die
WPlus9: Heart dies
Impression Obsession: Heart of Heart die
WOW: Metallic silver embossing powder

My card for CASEing is a simple one layer effort, using an adorable Stampin' Up image from the Cheerful Critters set.  He's coloured with watercolour pencils and the sign has a layer of Glossy Accents.  A doodled border and some baker's twine completes the card.
Here are some new acquisitions!
The flowers are from Stampin' Up coloured with alcohol markers and the sentiment is from Penny Black. I have found this sentiment to be really true... and how precious  those moments are.

Anne has been smitten with a sickness bug for the last week and so has not managed her usual number of visits and comments, but she hopes to get around to everyone now that she is feeling a little more like herself!
All three of us should be at the craft show at the NEC today... it would be lovely to say hi ... should we bump into any familiar faces.

This should be a fun challenge, we can't wait to see how you approach it!
