Shaped card



It's week 69 over at 'Less is More' & this time it's 
a recipe which is.......
We have a very simple recipe this week and that is
 simply to make a card which is
NOT A SQUARE
nor a rectangle for that matter.
What we're really trying to say is that we want a shaped card.
 Hmm they always manage to keep our grey matter going
 Chrissie and Mandi & this week is no exception !
I decided to use my  trusty nesties, ( labels 18).
I made a card using the largest shape from the set,
then I used a smaller die ( same set again ) to cut
another layer.I used a smaller die to cut the shape at the very
 bottom to add more interest. I then used chalks to make
 a little scene.I used my 'Create a scene' stamps for
 the large tree & various 'Hobby Art Ltd'. stamps for
 the grass and  hills etc. I used a mask for the sun &
 added a few birds  & nests to the tree ( peer closely).
I hope you can see birds nesting in that tree :)
 A few touches with various pencil crayons &
 Promarkers completes the card. I popped the matt 
on 3d pads for a bit of height  too.Hope there is enough
 white space now ??
ps. I managed to drop my chalks making this card & they 
have mostly smashed to pieces.....many pieces!!! grrrrrr!!!
We had a nice day yesterday babysitting our grandson Alex,
 he was a very good baby too.I hope you are all enjoying
 the lovely sun today. I have managed to plant all my
 bedding plants out at last &  make a card too.
 So off for another quick sunbathe now :)
 Have a lovely weekened everyone whatever you are doing.
