ShowCASe #313 - Balloons

Hi there LIMettes it's time for our weekly ShowCASe post. You've certainly 
made this the most difficult task EVER! So many outstanding, crisp, 
clean and simple designs with balloons. Masses of superb inspiration in one
challenge and you are all worthy of a showCASe badge BUT we have to limit it.

Being the first week of our newly designed blog and our birthday month 
we are feeling super generous ... and can't wait to dole out the new-style badges!

After much debate and scratching of heads this week we have
5 lucky ShowCASe cards 
for you so here goes in order of entry ...


Here with a super clean and fresh design and a fun take with
the hot air balloon Kajcyika shows how even a mistake can become
a masterpiece with the scrunched up circular background! Beautiful
eye-popping colours and so perfectly executed too.


The split panel with the beautifully blended cloudy sky disappearing
behind creates a wonderful pop of interest to the card and who can
resist that adorable little dog clinging on for dear life as the balloon
takes him off into the clouds. CAS and perfect as ever.

Hannelie never fails to impress with her eye-popping geometric CAS
designs with stunning use of colour. Here the polka dot balloon is
full of dimension and shimmering colour combos making the card
literally jump out of the screen and float off into the sky.


Izzy's chic and sophisticated feminine image teamed with
a heart shaped balloon makes for a fabulous and clever idea.
Combining the love and romance with and a brilliant fun sentiment!
Simple CAS perfection.


Well who would have thought that blue could be so fabulous.
So many tones and shades with such accurate blending of colour.
A beautiful clean and crisp design with the images placed in the top corner
and balanced perfectly with the bold, dimensional sentiment.

HUGE Congratulations ladies and please help yourself to our
 very first issue of the redesigned 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.
