This time it is Suzanne's turn to set the challenge and she has given us the challenge to make A SHAPE CARD Now any shape as long as it isn't Square or Rectangle.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Beckie from Lilac Lemon Designs who has kindly donated the following wonderful prize and Beckie has joined us in the challenge so pop over to the blog and check it out along with the wonderful cards the DT's have made all very different so lots of inspiration.

Well I struggled with this challenge not sure what shape card to make so decided i would make a easel card with my nesties and mount another to the side with the image on. It is a little small and you do have to have a smallish stamp but think it worked. I used one of my stamp I got for my birthday from a friend. Isn't she the cutest. Coloured with my promarkers and added a flower and some feathers with a few pearls. Papers are from a fee pack that came with a magazine. I am entering this into a few challenges listed below which fits with this challenge.
