Cowgirl's Sunday Stamp'en Challenge - Hip NOT to be square :-)

Another Sunday and another  challenge over at Cowgirl's Sunday Stamp'en Challenge, this week the theme is 'Hip not to be square', we want to see your shaped cards (anything but a square or rectangle). Once again we have a wonderful sponsor - Delicious Doodles!! Some of the DT got digistamps from Delicious Doodles to work with for this weeks challenge and I was lucky enough to get this gorgoeus lily!! I love flowers and have lots of lilies in my garden so I've really enjoyed colouring this beautiful image.

I've made an octagonal easel card. The shape was an easy one to do as I found a pack of tri-fold shaped cards I got ages ago from Joanna Sheen. I cut one of the octagons off to decorate and made the base of the easel card from the rest of the card. I'd totally forgot I'd got these card blanks there are loads of different shapes from tags to perfume bottles etc. 

 The background is made using a resist technique - I stamped a sketchy bow all around the card base and the easel and embossed with clear EP. I then coloured the card with assorted starburst stains and glimmer mists. I embossed the edges with gold EP. The doily is coloured with pearl glimmer mists, unfortunately the glimmer isn't showing up in the pic. The beautiful lillies are coloured with promarkers and attached with silicone for some dimensions. The butterflies and ivory ribbon are from my stash. The ticket sentiment reads 'Special Friend' and is from Crafty Ann's

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafts and Me: Easel Cards
Corrosive Challenge: Clean up the dust
Cute Card Thursday: Tweet and a flutter (no tweets lol but a couple of fluttery little butterflies)
Stamp Something: Digi day
Lots to Do: Monochrome

Check out my teamies blogs for some fab inspirational shaped cards, some are using gorgeous images from CJs shop Cowgirl's Digital Stamp'en Ranch. I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with for this weeks challenge. You don't want to miss out on the chance to win a fab prize from Delicious Doodles, and don't forget the Top 3 get  a prize and a badge for their blogs too!!

Thanks for looking, I hope you are having a good Sunday. Horrible rainy weather here so I think an afternoon in front of the TV with my promarkers sounds a good idea :-)
