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!
