Hello, Happy Tuesday,

Today we have a new challenge posted on the Sweet Stamps Challenge blog

Our challenge theme this week is 
Shaped Cards
(anything but a square or rectangle )

Each week Sweet Stamps has a new challenge and although you are not required to use a Sweet Stamp, if you have some we would love for you to use them and you will receive a second entry into our draw.

Our prize each week to one lucky winner is a $20.00 gift certificate to Sweet Stamp Store for use on any of our lovely rubber stamps.

This was a fun challenge for me as I was able to use Cheery Lynn Designs French Flair Stacker Nesting Dies to create my full card. My card base is cut using the largest of the dies 5 7/8" x 5 7/8" 
then continued with the next smaller die - I then stamped Bloom Word sentiment  with Memento Tuxedo Black on a oval die cut base and distress the edges of the yellow card stock with Shades Ink  Buttercup Yellow Sunshine. The beautiful design paper is from 6x6 Authentique Blissful pad . Ribbon, flowers and rhinestone swirl from my supplies. I used Copic C1 and Y21 to color my flowers to match the papers.

Do take a minute to stop over to the challenge blog to see all of the wonderful cards the team is sharing for inspiration and we hope you will join us this week!
