Shaped Card....

I feel guilty .... when it was my birthday at the end of May I was spoilt with crafty stash and vouchers (still unspent) and I am ashamed to say I had not inked up a lot of my new stamps.  My 19-year son visited my local craft shop, the Cubby Hole and purchased a number of items ...this is amazing for him as usually if I am not doing his "errands" he gets his 18-year sister to do them lol:)   This Kaisercraft stamp is one of the stamps he got me ..........good choice Damian!


I decided on a shaped card and went for an aged blue and brown colour combo.  The Stampendous Frantage powders were also courtesy of Damian.....

Paper piecing the stamped image.....


The buttons were threaded with a strand of silk cord, which was then laced through my layers.  They are uneven on purpose ...I am not the most symmetrical person lol:)
The flourish is an Indigo Blu stamp.
I would like to enter the following challenges with my card:-

Where my blogging friend Esther has been invited to join their great DT........fab!



Enjoy a restful Sunday everyone and here's hoping the rain stays away in the UK at least - I know other parts of the world are yearning rain!  Take care Suzanne ~x~
