All Sorts Challenge

Hi everyone, a card today for the All Sorts Challenge where this week they're asking for a shaped card. I have no idea if there is a name for the card I've made but I know it's been around for quite a long time, I think I got the dimensions from Splitcoast stampers originally but never got around to making one. It's a easy to make up, just cut a piece of card 12 inches wide by 4 inches deep, score at 4 inches and eight inches and then score the two outside squares in the middle on the diagonal left to right. I coloured a sweet Sugar Nellie image with pencils, used some BasicGrey Lemonade paper, added some stickles, some distressing and sponging around the image edges, a prima flower and BG button tied with embroidery cotton. My camera seems to have really picked up on the lime, it seems a lot softer IRL, hope I haven't burned anyone's eyes :D. Hope you're all having a good week. Chris x

Gorjus card Chris. Love the bright colours and the way you've shaded round the image is fab.

The couple of cards that I've missed are gorjus too. Love the subtle shades on the Magnolia one. And those cheeky little bees are so cute.

Love Karen x

As always, a gorgeous card! :o) Sorry i'm just getting back to you, thanks for my blog comment - i'm going to try the scissors technique as i love the distressed look. I'm a bit worried i'll mess it up so will try it out first on my less expensive papers...! Blogger is driving me mad as i get error messages or blogs don't load or pictures don't load argh! But i guess we are all in the same boat.
Hoping all is ok with you, Kate x
