Out Of Shape?

Don't answer that question! Just kidding today is Monday so that means it is time for the next Heart2Heart Challenge. This week the challenge is to make a shaped card, any shape other than a square or rectangle how fun is that? I knew right away what I wanted to do, I bought the cutest bird shaped chipboard album at Michael's for a buck, so I just folded a piece of cardstock in half, traced one of the chipboard pages, cut it out and voila a bird shaped card. Then using the wonderful new "Mistletoe" paper I covered my card and decorated it uo. That fabulous ribbon is from the Cocoa collection and I made that wonderfull flower out of cardstock, inked the edges in Desert Sand and added a cocoa button and some hemp. The sentiment was stamped from the Everlasting Life stamp set. For the eye I cut out a New England Ivy circle and took a brad from the center of a poinsetta in the "Mistletoe" Mini-Medley collection and put it through the center. I also used a scalloped border punch and a rhinestone flourish from Zva Creations and did some simple stiching along the edge. This challenge really inspired me and I hope it does you as well because it is another 4 for 40 week which means if we get 40 players this week one lucky player will win 4 cards handmade by the incrediably talented Andrea Ewen. So to play along just go to Heart2Heart see what the rest of the design team has come up with(you won't be dissapointed)and get working on your project using mostly CTMH products and then link back so we can see what you have made.

Super creative, Jess! I've done something like that as well, where I didn't have the pattern and just traced out what I needed! This is a great holiday card, I love the pearl flourish and the wonderful border at the bottom.
