Challenge #341 - OLC Vehicle

Hey there LIMettes, we're back with another challenge for you and it's that all time favourite ... or should we say feared? Yes we are back round to the ONE LAYER week - so no additional layers whatsoever, very minimal embellishments (if at all) and all stamping / images directly on the cardbase itself! EASY? Yeah?

Before we announce the details of the challenge we've some more sad news this morning. We are losing another of our awesome teamies. With a heavy heart, Esther, has had to make the decision to step down from the team immediately. She had hoped to stay on for a few more weeks but away from blogland she's had a BIG promotion at work which is seriously eating into her crafty time.

Since Esther joined the team and even before she's been a massive support in terms of inspiring us all with her unique creativity and dropping in on so many blogs with such encouraging feedback. Not only that but last year she took over the organisation of our Facebook page and completely overhauled the way we market the blog on there. We're all going to miss her but wish her well for the future and every success and congratulations in the new job. 

We're sure you'll miss her incredibly too and hopefully she'll still pop in to play along with us now and again and if we're lucky she may agree to guest design for an odd challenge when life settles down a little. 

So onto the challenge and we've got a fantastic selection of ideas from our superb design team this week and we're also joined by Marge, winner of our collaboration challenge with AAA Cards a few weeks ago. If you've never visited Marge's blog before then you are missing a treat. Her CAS designs are fantastic and her colouring is sheer perfection. Do pop along and leave her some love if you have a moment. 

So let's get down to the challenge and here's the CUE card, which should be straightforward enough, followed by examples from Marge and the Design Team to get you started ...
