This week at Just Add Ink, our challenge, courtesy of Tina, is to make a "shaped card".  When I told Ethan (my 12-yr-old) that I had to make a shaped card, he said "well, a rectangle's a shape, isn't it?!".  Oh, so I could've just taken my tried and true route after all???

I had a couple of ideas that just didn't make the cut.  In the end, I put to use my Ovals Framelits, that are new from Stampin' Up!, along with some pretty new items from the Artisan Embellishment Kit.  The colour scheme I've used is Primrose Petals, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla.  Although the photo doesn't show it, the die-cut butterfly is spritzed with Champagne Shimmer spray.

  1. Ha ha - this shape s very nice though. Lovely card and the colours are perfect. Love all the extras on it.

  2. Christine this is beautiful, I love the lace and little flower. Yes, you could have taken the 'usual route with a rectangle card' but what is the fun of the challenge in that, although Ethan should be praised for his perception.

  3. This is sooooo lovely Christine - the colours mixed with the butterflies and that gorgeous lace make this a stunning vintagey card! LOVE it!

  4. This is such a pretty card, Christine. That colour combo is gorgeous as is the card you've made with it. Great job!

  5. Love every bit of this Christine! All the tiny butterflies and the gorgeous rich girly colour combo! xxx
