Anything but square!

Good morning! It's Friday! Yippee! I hope you have some nice things planned for the weekend. It's a scheduled post because I work on Fridays but then looking forward to getting all the Christmas decorations up this weekend.

And as it's Friday it's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Catz - and this week our lovely Beth has set the challenge for us to make cards but with no squares or rectangles! Now this is always a challenge for me as my standard cards are nearly always 6" square - oops!  But anyway I came up with this

I've used an image from this week's sponsor 

The backing papers are from LOTV 'KraftyChristmas' with some added flowersoft and pearls.  The ivy and poinsettias were made with a Marianne die

And lots of added Stickles of course!  Then just a white satin bow to finish. 
Hope you like it!
So do pop over to CraftyCatz and join us for this week's challenge.
Back soon, Kim x
