Something with Shape(s) is the newest challenge from Squigglefly

This week the Holley Hobbiest Team at Squigglefly has given us to a SHAPE  Challenge!  Use at least three different shapes somewhere on your card somehow; For example, enclose your image in an oval, your sentiment in a decorative rectangle, and have a star shaped embellishment....get the idea?
 So for this I attempted to work with an Outer Stair Step Card, using the great pre-cut and scored card from The Paper Cut.  This pumpkin colored form is from their Earth Variety pack which has some wonderful Fall Colors.  It made a great base for the fun, playful digital images called Bee Hive  and Bee Set by Pammie Lehto.  She is one of the many talented artists at Squigglefly.  I used lots of mats, patterned paper as well as homemade paper, and  some bling.  This all compresses down to an A2 sized card .  The shapes I used were rectangle, oval (those chubby bees) and the step card shape!  Hope those all count!! 
So go have some fun with this and perhaps you could win a Squigglefly image from the shop-They have Tonzzzzzzz of great images to choose from!

  2. omgoodness what detail in this Carolyn! Great way to incorporate all the shapes! I have to admit I'm intimidated by step cards. I'm such a slow crafter that it would probably take me a week to make one! Fabulous card! Thanks for playing with us in the Squigglefly challenge this week!
