Don’t Be Square!

They’re having a fun challenge on the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge blog.  You have to make anything but a square card!  I love this type of challenge.  It’s gets you out of the rut of always making the same shaped card.  I am using a rubber stamp from the Lulu and Friends collection.

Lulu and Friends

Isn’t she a sweetie!  I used the color combo of orange, yellow and white which are the requirements for the Outlawz challenges (Tuesday Color Combo).  To make the shape of the card I combined two different shaped Spellbinder dies.  The sentiment is part of the stamp collection.  I used brads so that I could run the twine threw them and around the card.  I just got a brand new MFT flower die, which I promptly used for this card,  The embossed hearts are made with an embossing folder by Darice.

Anyway, have a fabulous evening, and thanks for poppin’ in!
