I'm no square!

Good morning peeps

It's a new challenge day again over at 

Not another month gone by surely!!

Our challenge theme this month is 

Not a Square

I used a cute LOTV image called love balloon to make this card which was made for  friends of my daughter who just got engaged...well this was the second card I made after the first one was ..... square : /

I gave this cute couple lovely black hair because the happy couple are both from Chinese families - when my hubby saw it he said - why didn't you use a Chinese couple!   - men are very strange (well you probably already know that lol) - what is it about this image that says they're not Chinese -that's what I want to know!!

We have lots of lovely sponsors this month again - check it all out on the challenge blog here

This is what I did......

Love Balloon Image and handwritten sentiment - From Lili of the Valley
Coloured with copics and Prismacolor pencils
Papers - Mirabelle from Santoro (love these gorgeous textured papers)
Ribbon - vintage seam binding from Crafty Ribbons
Pearls - assorted sizes from my stash
Pearl swirl - Creative expressions
Butterfly die - Tim Holtz on the edge from Sizzix

We're looking forward to seeing those lovely shaped projects this month - check out what the other fairies have made for your inspiration over at the challenge blog.

A really awesome creation Judith. Great colouring and a fantastic layout. In answer to your question has it taken you this long to discover that men are VERY STRANGE. Lol!!!

Aww Judith, your post so made me laugh! Yes, men are indeed very strange at times. I just love it!¬! This is an absolute stunner. I love that butterfly border die and it looks stunning here. I have those papers and haven't used them. Shame on me - they are just beautiful. This card is just perfect :) Hugs, Jayne x
