Shaped cards!

At the HappiScrappin Challenge Blog it's time to challenge ourselves to break out of that square/rectangle RUT and make a shaped project!  Any shape other than the square and rectangle mentioned, go crazy!  The HappiSisters have made some gorgeous cards, you have to go look at them.  I feel honored to be on a design team with such talented individuals.

Here's my card:

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:

Outlaws anything but square challenge
and Whoopsi Daisy let's get in shape challenge

Isn't that teddy bear a cutie?  You can find him, along with a bunch of other beautiful digis at the Happileigh Scrappin store.  It's always buy-3-get-1-free at Leigh's store, what a great deal!  Plus she's giving away this gorgeous digi with every sale during July!
How sweet is that?!

My card shape was made on my Silhouette in three layers; the card base (which you can't see), the blue scalloped flower, and the pink polka dotted layer with the cutout triangles.  The cutiepie bear I've already mentioned, don't you just want to hug him?  He was colored with Copic markers, then I added Stickles to the flower and to the bears blue eyes.  I used a small StampinUp! punch for the little blue flowers, then added a gem and Stickles. Two of the little flowers are popped up, as is the bear and the sentiment.  There is a tiny layer of Stickles on the sentiment too.  Can't have enough sparkle!

Head on over to the challenge, let's see what shapes you can make!
