Challenge Do Over - SOS #238 - Bent Out of Shape

You know sometimes you make a card for a challenge and'll do...but then it nags and nags and nags at you??

The latest SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge Bent Out of Shape was like that for me. I think I mentioned I wasn't feeling well last week and I was up making cards between 2:30 and 7:30 am one morning...well sometimes that doesn't lead to your best work.

Now, keep in mind, making shaped cards is not my favourite those factors combined led me to make THIS CARD which I am not thrilled over.

One of my lovely co workers asked me to make an owl birthday card for her grandson's birthday. I was so happy with how it came out I am calling a challenge do over LOL

I think this is going to be my go-to cute card for little people, it was so quick and easy to make and come's stinkin cute!!

I liked it so much I made another one in pink!

Even when I cut and scored it the wrong way I still liked it!

Shite I used to make these cards:

  • Crumb Cake, Bashful Blue and Calypso Coral cardstock (SU)
  • Black and pink cardstock (Recollections)
  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Happy Camper paper pack (We Are Memory Keepers)
  • Be.Loved. paper pack (Fancy Pants)
  • Top note die (SU)
  • Large and small heart punches (SU)
  • 3/4", 1", 1 1/4" and 1 3/4" (SU)
  • Scallop punch (SU)

I did like your first shaped card, but these are awesome! Even in pink! ;)

I also liked your first card but this is fabulous, I must try one, the GGS would love it. I think the same about my card, really not much shape, then I saw a stamp in my hoard and gave myself a V8 slap.
