Taking Shape

I'm working on "my shape" this week.  For my body, that means getting back into the daily habit of working out and getting my body in shape.  For this week's challenge at our challenge is also to work on "our shape".  We were challenged to create a card that's out of the ordinary....not a square/rectangle.  I chose to do a flower-shaped card, and I had a lot of fun making it.

I traced a chipboard flower, cut it out of Bazzil cardstock and covered it with a striped Scenic Route patterned paper.  Then, I used a doily inked with Ranger ink, a little cutie cut from Cosmo Cricket's Odds & Ends line, some Making Memories flowers, a resin flower from Webster's Pages, and used a stamped image from Papertrey Ink.  I can't wait to see all the other shapes the creative participants have made for this challenge.

Thanks for looking!
