Crafty Cardmakers 31 Anything But a Square.

Doesn't time fly. Monday already and time for another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers. This time we would like your card to be anything but a square.

I decided to use my larges nesties to make a circular card. I'm still keen on making Christmas cards so here's another one. I work in the Post Office inside the village shop and there are about five teenagers who work after school and at the weekend so a little card like this is ideal for them

These little diddy cards are not actually any quicker to make than a normal size card as they can be quite fiddly and you have to make sure you use patterns  and images that are not too big!

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black.
DP :- Basic Grey.
Sentiment :- Craftwork Cards.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Nesties, stickles, Glamour Dust and ribbon.

I followed the sketch from Mojo Monday so I will be entering that challenge. And I see that the challenge over at Penny Black is "don't be square" so I'll enter there too.

I'm working full time all this week as my colleague is on holiday so I hope I can keep up with visiting your blogs to see what you've been making. My teamies have lovely cards on their blogs so please try to pop over and see what they've made to inspire you.
