Meljen's Challenge #5 - Show Us Your Shape!

This is another delightful freebie from Meljen's on Paper Craft Planet.  This challenge was creating a card that is not a square or rectangle.  I used the Cricut Wildcard cartridge, to make the "doily" card.  The digital image was printed on Neenah card stock, and colored with copics.  I used spellbinders round and scalloped round dies to cut the image out with.  I also used the Cricut Doodlecharm cartridge to make the flowers, and the vines.  Once I cut the flowers out, I embossed them with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, and then used a glitter pen on the dots, and on the image flowers.  The buttons on the flowers are from the Doodlebug - Tropical Assortment package.  The butterfly is from my dollar store stash, and the ribbon is from Walmart.  To finish it off  I put blue gems around the scallops.
Thanks to Meljen's and the designer team for another great challenge!  Thanks for stopping by.
