Challenge #72 - NO square or rectangle cards

Good Morning!
I can't believe that another month is over already and that we're in the middle of February now. Time's just flying...
Well, I do hope that you all had a lovely Valentine's Day with your loved ones. As it is not really celebrated over here in Germany, I just spend the day at one of the carnival parades. I love carnival!

Anyways, let's get to our challenge. Most people use square or rectangular card bases for their cards, so this month we challenge you to make "NO square or rectangle cards"... Get out those fancy dies and create a different shaped card.

We also have some generous sponsors for this challenge, whom I would like to thank very much for sponsoring us.

Our lovely Vanessa and her shop Scrappiness Designs
offer a $7 coupon for the winner!


Prize  -  £10 gift cert. for the online store
