Anything but square.....

Hi guys, back to work today.  Boooooo.....
Its time for another challenge over at Ladybug Crafts Ink and this time its the turn of the lovely Pam to choose the challenge and she has chosen
Anything but Square
so we would love to see all your fab creations which are not square shaped.
Now, I have to admit to always finding these challenges really tough, unless my cards are a perfect square I seem to get anxious and then struggle for inspiration.  After a pep talk from the fab laybugs I decided to give a scallop circle card a try.  I used my grand nesties and I have to say that I love the effect!!
I used so little of the patterned papers that this could be a fab way of using up my scraps....
The image is Cupcake Stack from Ladybug Crafts Ink and I coloured her with copics.
The swirl is Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish and the aqua butterfly is also a Cheery Lynn die.
The Kraft heart is from the Cheery Lynn Heartland die and the small heart is a small punch I have in my stash.  The small butterflies are a Martha Stewart Punch.
The flowers are Die namics Flower Trio made using some fab felt from Ladybug Crafts Ink, as are the gems on the butterflies which are so sparkly its amazing!!!






So why not come and join in our fab challenge, you dont need to use a Ladybug Crafts Image, but we love it when you do....

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Flourishes - Pink a licious
Hooked on Crafts - Flowers
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
