Sarah Kay is "Too Posh to be Square"!

Today is Sundays... and that means time for the Sarah Kay Challenge Blog!

*Week 3* Too Posh To Be Square
No square cards, or books, coasters, altered art etc.
You are free to create anything you like as long as it's not square!Please remember your work must include at least one Sarah Kay image.

How fun is that! Really give a lot of options, and let me tell you the other DT's really did some fantastic work, make sure to check them out.

I decided to make a small gift card. I don't have enough of these in my stash and they really are fast and easy. I started with the image "Rose's Garden" I just love her hair, just so Victorian and girlie. I colored her with my Copics, white gel pen and Sakara pens. I cut her out with my oval Nestibilities, a larger oval out of green and then a cut larger scalloped purple card stock for the mat. Now to make the card part I used the same size oval as the image and folded a piece of card stock then placed it under the die with a portion of the folded side just inside the die so it would not cut. I think that makes sense, doesn't it?

I then attached all of the pieces. To give a shadow look I took a dark purple Copic Marker and ran it along the outer edge of the scallops. I doodle the image, stitched the mat, and then stickle dotted the scallops. The sentiment is from Rubber Stamp Tapestry.

Well it isn't square... hope you like it -

I am off now.... crazy day! Today is the Bridal Shower I am co-hostessing, gotta go pick up the food and then decorate and then smile... greet host... then clean up... then come home and pass out! I am so tired from two midnight crops! I took some photographs of the book I made for the Bride.. I'll post later in the week, as I don't want her to peek early =)

Have a great Sunday!

HUGS and -
