GDT at Phindy's - Shaped Cards

Yay, it’s Friday and the weekend is clearly in sight…I hope it brings some brighter weather with it as it’s been so dull and dark here most of the week...not to mention all the rain we had yesterday…roll on spring and some brighter sunnier days!

I’m a bit excited to show you this card today. Before Christmas I entered a challenge at Phindy’s Friday Challenge Blog and my lil snowman card was chosen as card of the week which also meant I was in the running to be chosen to guest design with Phindy and the team. I was chuffed to bits when they asked me to join them and this is my guest design card for this week’s challenge which is SHAPED CARDS. Fortunately I still had a blank card base leftover that I cut on my Cricut before I sold it and I don’t have a scoobie what I will do now they are all gone. I’ve had a look on Ebay in the hope that someone may be selling them but to no avail...gutted!

Anyhoo…I’ve used this gorgeous lil baby image from Phindy’s store and I’ve part coloured, part paper pieced for a bit of interest. I can definitely see me using this gorgeous lil bundle of cuteness again and if you want to see more fab digi images from Phindy’s store you can check them out here.

Colouring Medium : Promarkers & Smooth White Card
