JAI 151 Just add a shaped card

Hello there,
this week we have a fun challenge for you at Just Add Ink and its to Just Add a shaped card. Any shapes goes as long as its not your standard square or rectangle card. The DT has some very fun and inspiring examples so do check them out!! Here's what I came up with.

I hadn't used my Labels framelits to make a card base yet - so it was definitely time to pull them out. I decided to leave the top flat but have the kite element pop up up above it a little to break the line. I was aiming for CAS - well CAS my way ;) with pops of bright colour. I did a fair bit of paper piecing to bring that colour in using the SU! Summer Smooches DSP. For my little Pure Innocence figure, I coloured and paper pieced her then cut her out and mounted her above the bard base. A bit of doily, button and piercing detail and she was all finished.

Hope you can join in the fun this week. Thanks for visiting :)
