PRIZE:  Winner’s Choice of TWO SHEETS of Digis!

I always struggle with shaped cards. I figure it is because I am very traditionalist, I really like the look of a square card! I looked all over the internet for inspiration and had a hard time finding a shape I could grow to like and want to spend time on decorating. Finally, I came across a few and the flower shaped ones caught my eye as being perfect for the image I had colored and ready to go! So, without anymore complaining, here is my card:

I can't get enough of Mo Manning images lately! This is "Make a Wish". She is just so, so cute!! The paper pad in MME Indie Saffron. I got a really good deal on it as it probably is an older pad, but to me it is new, fresh and I am loving it! I have a mix of Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and a doily as my only real embellies. I did add some glitter glue to the Dandelions. I distressed the edges of the paper with my scissors and inked the yellow papers with Wild Honey and the sentiment stamp with Tumbled Glass. The sentiment is   
from Whimsy Stamps and I just realized I have the die to cut it out! Duh!! I just used my scissors this time! Geez, I guess I didn't need the die like I thought I did!

Look at how sweet she is! 

So that's my non-square card, now show me yours! Stop by the blog to get some more inspiration and join in the fun this week! And, please leave a comment, I love to hear from you!
