It's Thursday again so time for another Lili Of The Valley challenge and this week we have a great challenge for you. The theme this week is 'Any Shape But Square' so we would like you to make something that shows us some different shapes other than square, so let's see how inventive you can be. We are again being sponsored by Lisa & Laila who have kindly donated a £10.00 voucher to spend in the LOTV Online Shop. Don't forget, to be eligble for the prize you have to use an LOTV image on your project. The DT have created some beautiful cards so why not pop on over to the blog and have a look.

I must admit that I usually 'play safe' and make a square card so I was a bit out of my comfort zone doing this circular card. I started by distressing the base card with chalks and then stamped over the edge with Tapestry stamps. The image has been coloured with Promarkers but this time I have done her wings with Fantasy Film. It is such a long time since I played with this film that I had forgotten how gorgeous it looks. The image has then been layered onto various panels cut with Nesties. The flowers and leaves have been punched and roses put in the centres. The roses weren't the right colour so I touched them up with a Promarker. An organza ribbon finishes the card. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Card Recipe

Stamps - LOTV/Tapestry
