Dottie's World - You'd Better Shape Up!


It was my turn to set the challenge over at Dottie's World this week and as I'm a shaped card addict I decided to go with a shaped card theme. The thing I love about making shaped cards is that they look like they took ages but I find them quicker to make than regular shaped cards. I think the reason is that with regular cards I spend ages faffing with the layout, embellishments and papers but with shaped cards the detail is the shape! There isn't much else to think about.


Here's what I came up with .....


I don't mind saying that I think it looks really good And it was so easy!! he inspiration from the double edge around the image came from Juliet's Holly in Spain card, the rest just happened by accident really! Don't you just love it when that happens?

I used acrylic dew drops in the centre of the flowers and the image is Holly in the Garden from the original Holly & Madison digital collection. The Mulberry flowers are available here.

There's a prize up for grabs this week and you could be chosen as guest designer (if you would like to be) so pop on over for a look.
