Glitter n Sparkle DT - Shaped Cards/Non-Cards

Hi, everybody! Before I share my card, I would like to welcome two lovely new followers - Irina Malina and Nancy Soetaert - so nice to have you join me!

It's Sunday, so that means we have a new challenge for you over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog! This week our theme is Shaped Cards/Non-Cards. This is always a tough one for me since I usually do squares or rectangles, but I do enjoy a challenge! I hope you do too - come over and join us! I chose the beautiful Kitten Heart by Karen Middleton at Sweet Pea Stamps. This kitty is so sweet! I coloured her with my Prismacolor pencils and sponged around the edges with Scattered Straw Distress Ink. For my shape, I made a scalloped circle easel card.

My colour combo was inspired by Colette's Cosmic Colours Challenge #11 (see swatch below) and I used three of the colours.  I made this for a person whose favourite colour is yellow so I'm hoping it's a hit!  I used My Creative Time Bunch of Fun Circles and Nellie's Multiframe Circles to create the easel. On the front of the card, I stamped a dollar-store sentiment onto patterned paper, punched with my Marvy Uchida Circle Punch and affixed it to a die-cut flower (Top Dog Dies Pretty Petals).  I added two shimmery butterflies, accented with blue gems. On the base of the card, I stamped a Stampendous sentiment, which I popped up with foam tape. The patterned paper is from DMD.

Please come over and join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Shaped Cards/Non-Cards challenge. We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs again this week!

A wonderful combo of blue and yellow. I also love the shape and Easel style of your card. I am grateful that you joined us in our Challenge and we have a new one starting today. Please link with us again at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you an inspirational verse as spoken by Jesus to them that believe from John 14:21 and it says, "Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them." A blessed week to you always.
