All Shaped Up!


Are you guys ready for another fun, fun La La Weekly Wednesday challenge? I hope so because this week it's all about SHAPES, challenge set by our talented Maureen Wong! She would love to see some amazing cards with shapes other then the usual square.

My mojo was kind of disappeared after my mini vacation so I just made a plain old round one (my first time making one). I thought an image in a sitting position would look better in a round card so I invited Sitting Lala over for some fun!

Lately, Jessica over at The Whimsical Butterfly is into the pleated ribbon treatment so she definitely inspired me to add it to today's card. I think this card was my first and last time using pleated ribbon. It does add a nice touch to the whole card. :D

Since it's almost Valentine's Day, I added a couple of hearts....even though it's a Thank You card. This card measures 6x6.

I am entering this card for these challenges:

There She Goes: 3 different embellishments
Creative Belli Blog: Any type of glitter or rhinestone
Crafty Cardmakers: What's New. Making a round card is new to me.
2RedBananas: Think Round
Lily of the Valley: A Thank You Card
The Corrosive Challenge: Distressing
Simon Says Stamps: Shabby Chic
Die Cut R Us: Leftovers: I used all scraps...leftover Eskimo Kiss patterned paper
Cupcake Craft Challenge: Going Girly

Thank you so much for stopping by and happy crafting, Everyone!

Card Details:
Sitting Lala (La La Land Crafts), Sentiment (Hero Arts)
Ink: Copic, Cat's Eyes
Paper: Basic Grey (Eskimo Kisses)
Embellishments: twine, button, ribbon
Tools/Others: stickle
