INTAAS - Shaped Card

Come along and join us in the challenge theme of 'Shaped card' - no squares or rectangles as set by DT member Christina over at International Art and Soul.

Gone are the days when I would make easel cards, stepper cards and all the other various shapes. I stick to squares usually but now and again, very rarely, I push the boat out and make an oval, lol This is one such time - sorry Christina, not very creative.

My card blank was a 7x7 by Craft UK which I cut with a Spellbinders grand oval to make this card. I used a Papermill bright pink card as the base mat and then a pretty pale pink paper with white polka dots, from Simply Cards & Papercraft, on top of that before adding the image of the elegant lady, This is from one of Joanna Sheen's CDs which is called Dancing with Shadows I used Spellbinder scalloped ovals to cut the polka dot paper and the image before adding to the mat. The black and pearl gems are from Hobbycraft and I set those at an angle across the left edge.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes
A Place To Start - Pick a Shape
Country View - Silhouettes

International Art and Soul - Bunny

Please join us at International Art and Soul with our theme of Bunny. I had to use Peter Rabbit because he's my favourite rabbit of all time.

My card blank is a 7x7 by Crafts UK. I made a mat of bright turquoise card which covered the whole front of the card. I stamped the images of Peter Rabbit and his friends using Joanna Sheen's stamps. My Promarkers came out for the colouring before I used Spellbinder oval and circle dies to cut them out. I then used Distress Ink round the edges. The ribbon I've had for years and I have two boxes full of rolls of ribbon so I decided I had to use some of them. Three strips were placed across the bottom half of the mat before fixing Peter Rabbit in the bottom left running towards his friends in the top right. The little Happy Birthday sentiment was on a sheet of sentiments but I have no idea where I got them, sorry. I matted it on to pale blue card to match the distressed edges of the images.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
