Stampendous Saturday Shaped Challenge

Hello Saturday Friends.

Yes - here is a second post from me today.  I have a little secret to tell you.....but not for another week or so. But until then, I am going to share some fun Stampendous challenges with you.

Have you checked out the challenge with the Stampendous team this month? Each Saturday in March, there will be a challenge to make a shaped card or project - something other than the traditional square or rectangular card. Doesn't that sound like fun?

Here is the card I created for you.  I think the banner shape is just delicious!!

Stamps: Ruffled Butterfly, Orchid Greetings  (Stampendous)
Patterned Paper: Neapolitan Collection by Dear Lizzy (American Crafts)
Card Stock: Gina K
Ink: Rich Cocoa, Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Accessories: Generic white  pearls colored with Copic Marker 

Ready to see even more shaped inspiration? Here is a list of the Stampendous team members and special friends playing along today:

We want YOU to play along too!  Just add your direct link to your shaped card or project to the linky tool below my signature (or on the Stampendous blog) no later than April 5, 2012 at 11:00 PM EST.  You do not have to use Stampendous products to play along, but they sure love it when you do!  And as an extra incentive for playing, one lucky person (drawn at random from all the entries) will receive this gorgeous Cling Jumbo Hollyhock Stamp Set:

Due to shipping restrictions, the winner must have a US address.  We hope you get a chance to play along with us - happy crafting!

Be sure to come back tomorrow and I'll have another fun card to show you. See you then!
