Not square?

Hi blogworld,

How unusual, eh!  A card that isn't a square and it's all because for the new challenge over at Dream Valley we're looking for your anything but square creations.

We're sponsored this fortnight by these two fab companies:

where the winner will 4 images as their prize.

My not square, well this is it - whatd'ya think then?

Front shot:

Detail shot of image:

Arty farty side shot - really needed this time I think!

I used:

The Greeting Farm - Miss Anya collection
coloured, as always, with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers

Nesties - circle and label
Memory Box die - Elegant Scrollwork

Unknown - it's from my scrap pile

Anything else:
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment from Lili of the Valley
Martha Stewart punch and stamp for the butterfly

I don't know if you noticed the bo-bo, but I tried using Viva Decor Pearl pen on the butterflies and it didn't work!!  All splodgie instead, but by that time the glue had dried and I couldn't pull them off. Blogger it!!!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for your not square - see you at the valley.


A challenge, or two:

Di's DigiDesigns Challenges: Pile on the flowers

Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge: Fancy Folds

The Paper Shelter: Flower Power

This is beautiful Sarah! I love the step card shape! Gorgeous card!


PS I can't tell what you are talking about re the butterflies, but if they are 'bugging' you (lol) maybe you could try sticking pearls on gems over the boo boo?

Great step card! is the shape punched out with a magic 8 punch? I think you did a great job on this, the image is so cute and the colors all go together so well! dont know if I would have thought to put the blue flower in there, but it really just makes the card compleat!
