Time for another challenge at Lili's Little Fairies and this week we want to see 'Anything But Square'.  So put your thinking caps on and let's see what shapes you come up with.  Don't forget that you must use an LOTV image on your wonderful creations.

The other day I saw a fantastic teapot shaped card on a blog and was so impressed with it that I had to have a go myself.  You must go over and check out Anja's beautiful creations, she even gives you a freebie teapot template.  Thank you for the inspiration and freebie Anja.

As you can see I have made a new home card, and I don't know about you but whenever I moved home, the first thing I wanted was a cup of tea so I thought this would be ideal.  I started my card by printing the cardstock on both sides with this gorgeous digi paper.  I then printed the template on one side, cut it out and inked around the edges.  I then added my image which I had coloured with promarkers to match the paper.  Next I stamped and heat embossed a die cut tag with a little sentiment and added it to the top.  Next I stamped some cupcakes, also coloured with promarkers, and 3D'd two of them before attaching with foam pads.  The leaves are die cut whilst the flowers are punched and have pearls in the centres.  I also added some tiny punched flowers to the tag and added gems to the centres of these.  On the inside I have put a teabag in aan envelope as a little gift.  Finally I tied some ribbon to the teapot handle.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
