Shaped cards - Sweet Stampin' DT

Good morning all!

It's another busy morning for me today, with three posts scheduled, so bear with me if I appear on your blog feed rather more than usual!

First of all, it being Saturday, there's a new challenge starting over at Sweet Stampin'. And this week we're looking for shaped cards. So, let's leave those boring squares and rectangles behind, and play with something different.

I certainly went different with mine... For starters I used a pre-made card blank, whereas normally I make my own. And while usually my every instinct tells me to add fluffy type trims to the bottom of a card, this time I added it to the top (mostly because that's where the straight edge was, lol.).

Anyways, here it is:

The stamp is of course a Saturated Canary one, and the papers are the new Santoro ones. They are so incredibly gorgeous, but I've really struggled for the most part to use them...
I inked the edges of the paper, and some lace, gems and a bow finish it off.

Now we'd love it if you go take a peek at what my fellow Sweeties have been up to, and then come and play along!

That's it for this post, back in a minute with the next one!

Well as I work backwards with my commenting... I'm here now at your first of today's trio!! Of course, you may guess that this one is my favourite... but I'm a little biased as it's PINK! LOL! Loving your colouring on the image and the fab design! You've been busy!!
