Fitztown - Shaped Card

I don't very often make shaped cards but I decided to throw caution to the wind this week and join in with this Fitztown Shaped Cards challenge. I chose Floral 3 to be my image, available from the Fitztown store.

I coloured the pansies with my Promarkers and added some Stickles to the centre of the large flower. The shape of the image decided my card shape and so I used my grand Spellbinders classic oval to cut it out. I used Distress Ink on the edges and then decided to mat it on to the grand scalloped oval which I cut using an A3 sheet of off white textured card from Papermill.  I added Wild Orchid Craft pearls, in two different shades of purple, to the scallops. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and after fussy cutting and edging with Distress Ink I raised it on foam pads for some dimension.

Please check the Fitztown challenge blog for details of prizes.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
