In *SHAPE*

MORNING!
Are you in Shape?  
I'm not! 
And at this age probably won't be in shape anytime soon!! 
LOL!

The challenge this week at Classy Cards n Such is to make a SHAPED card.
This truly is a challenge for me because I never think to do a shaped card creation ...
but I'm going to work on that!!


 I decided to create a vintage style card 
using my Spellbinder 'Fleur De Lis Squares' die. 
I've even made a coordinating envelope using the WeR Memory Keepers
Envelope Punch Board.


Other design elements are:
Webster's Pages - fabricfancies (really fabric ... beautiful)
Spellbinder Classic Circle die
Goldenrod satin ribbon
White Gelly Roll Pen - faux stitching

I love how this came together!  Thank You Classy Cards n Such for making me think outside the box.  In fact, this was such fun I think I'll try another one! 

Challenges I'd like to enter into:
Amusing Challenge - Anything Goes
Dream Valley Challenge - No Designer Paper

 Thanks so much for stopping.
Hope your week is off to a fabulous start!
Still VERY COLD here in Ohio and supposed to be EVEN COLDER
the next couple of days!  Yikes!
Time to 'Throw Another Log on the Fire!!!!'

What a beautiful card! I have the Spellbinders 'Fleur De Lis Squares die set but have not used it yet. I may have to try something like this.

I'm not into vintage, but I just love how you used this die! Thanks for the insight and inspiration! I may just have to start re-thinking about these types of dies.
