Totally Tilda Shaped Challenge



I can't believe how fast a month flew by and it's already time for the next challenge at Totally Tilda. And what a fabulous one - Shaped cards. The DT were supplied with different shapes courtesy of Susie Sugar and they are available at the DCD Store. When I first saw the shapes my gut told me to go with the circle, but I kept thinking about this book shape. I thought wouldn't it be cool if it read Once upon a time...etc and had a princess sitting on it. So away I went. I stamped the SU french script on the background, distressed the edges a bit. Reused ribbon from and old candle ring, added some WO flowers and used this adorable Tilda that Deb stamped off for me. The Whimsy French Ticket sentiment was the perfect finishing touch. In the end it's pretty simple, but I am very pleased!
I am entering these challenges.... Pollycraft - wedding/anniversary, Paperplay - open, Dutch Dare - open, Totally Paper Crafts - Cinderella.
