Creative Knockouts #81 - Shaped Card Challenge

Get your creative ideas flowing, Friends -  we have a shaped card challenge Creative Knockouts for the next fortnight.  Your card can be any kind of fancy fold or shape - just not a conventional rectangle card.

I elected to make mine a circle card, and pulled out the biggest stitched die circle I had from Lil' Inkers.  Next, I ran the top through an embossing folder.  First, I inked up the inside of the folder with lavender ink to give the card some color.  I love how it turned out!  My image, Daisy Pitcher, is from our sponsor, Meljens Designs.  If you like Meljens cute images, pop into their shop quickly.  They are closing in April, but you can get their digital images on sale before the doors close.

Stop by the Creative Knockouts blog and see what the other girls have in store for you.  I can't wait to see your cards!
