Sisterhood Challenge - 'Let's Get In Shape'

Hello All!
Today brings a new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
'Sistah' Diane is our hostess today and she's asked us to 'Get In Shape'!
No she doesn't expect you to put on your sweat pants and go outdoors for a jog ... BUT,
she is asking you to create using any shape other than rectangular or square!

Now I must admit I'm guilty of rarely creating a shaped card so today's
challenge has MADE me think outside the box!  I decided to use the Spellbinder Nestabilities
'Majestic Circles' for my shape and I love how it came together!

What a sweet little card this turned into and perfect for that
added note I want to place inside a gift I'm giving to friends we are visiting soon.

I die cut the BASE white card using the largest decorative circle ...
then cut the '2nd largest' die with my peach colored card stock only to find the
scrap I used wasn't large enough to use the large die cut again to cut the outter
edge ... so I quickly ran my Fiskars swivel craft knife closely around the 
decorative design and VIOLA!    Whew!!

My floral element was cut from white card stock using the Spellbinder D-Lites
'Asters & Poppies' die then colored using just the inks that remained
in my sponge daubers for these colors.  My sentiment comes from the Inspired by Stamping
'Words of Inspiration' stamp set and a few sequins were all the embellishment
I thought was needed.  Hope you like it!!

Challenges to share in:
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes (6/1)
Inky Chicks Challenge - Anything but square & your favorite stamp (love my sentiment stamps!)
{PIN}spirational Challenge - Anything Goes (6/6)

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun!  I could sure use the inspiration 
so look forward to seeing what you all create!!

As always . . .

Love this peach color Darlene. Your card really pops!

Kathy Krug said...

Such a pretty card, and I love the sentiment. However, I fear that I will be humming or singing that song for the rest of the day.

Pam said...

This is just lovely!

I too love shaped cards but don't do them very often, love the way you colored the flowers!

Leslie Miller said...

I don't make shaped cards often, either, and why not? I don't know. Just look how cute and happy this is! Love the decorative circle die and pretty flower. It will make a sweet gift enclosure, especially with the sentiment you used. Have a happy weekend!
