Well its Shape up time!!!!

Well its challenge time again over at The Crafty Purple Frog!! This weeks theme is Shape it up and we hope to see what spectacular shapes and designs you come up with!! The green theme was just fantastic and some great entries thank you!

Well here' mine! Out came my circle cutter and wow how easy was this, last time I made a circle easel I had given up the will to live but not this time it was a doddle.

The beautiful image is Caribbean Treasure and can be found here.will lot's of stickles as always.

Used some of Tim Holts Grunge shapes and embossed them with Blonde Moments powders.

Went around the circles with my distress tool and added Viva Pearls to the base card.

Added this beautiful ribbon around the edges which really sets off the image perfectly.

Finally the card is just plain card stock which I have distressed the edges.

Well that's it!! I hope you manage to pop over to the other DT blogs for more inspiration which will get your creative juices flowing with your entries!!! lol

Thanks for all your wonderful comments and a big hello to all my new followers.
