Get in shape !

This weeks challenge over at my mums craft shop challenges is shaped cards.

I can't wait to see what gorgeous creations you come up with for this challenge. The DT have made some gorgeous samples so don't forget to hop on over to the challenge blog and check them all out.

I used papers from the MME Miss Caroline howdy doody paper pad which I just cannot put down at the moment it is so very pretty.
The flowers (unity) are stamped onto the DP and cut out, glittered then layered up. The leaves are die cut with my new little leaves sizzlits die from stampin' up. These are all layered up with a heart doily some seam binding and a button & gem stone combo.

Here is another closer shot

I have left the bottom half of my easel card fairly plain (apart from the pearl stoppers) as there is so much happening up the top ! It also gives me room to stamp a personal greeting as I have made this card with someone special in mind (shhhh don't tell !)

I would like to add this card to the following challenges;

Just us girls challenges - 3D challenge using ribbons, flowers & buttons (S)
Truly, madly, crafty challenges - Ribbon & bling (Monthly)
