Shape Up @ MAWTT

Good Morning everyone. I'm back today with a news of a new challenge at
and this week I'm hosting and chose the theme

Shape Up!

Now I am on a major fitness and health campaign but I assure you this challenge doesn't involve anything strenuous or the restriction of chocolate you might need to consume to join in!
Just cards and projects that are not square please!

Here's what I came up with...

I made this card for a commission and later personalised it but I took this picture before I put the recipients name on it. I used another one of my unused Tilda's, I'm working my way through them! Lots of WOC flowers and a couple of rolled ones too. Papers are MME, Miss Caroline I think. The letters are glitter stickers, I have 100's of different stickers and rub ons and die cut alphabets I need to use up!! I was a bit heavy handed with the frantage, Tilda looks like she is hiking through the snow!!

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details and some fabulous shapely creations from my talented teammies. They have really pushed the boat out this week for your inspiration.

This fabulous prize is on offer to the winner this week
Thank you for dropping by and for any comments you may leave, hopefully I've settled back in and caught up with all the  holiday washing and ironing and I'll be along to visit you ASAP!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges
Magnolia-Licious - Anything Goes
Midweek Magnolias - Anything Goes
MDU - Anything Goes
LHOSW - Dots or Stripes

Love this plain and simple card!lol
Fabulous shape and colour choice.
Beautiful colouring and some gorgeous embellishments.
Never heard of frantage and not sure that I can spot what it is on your card, unless it is the white bubbly stuff.
Good luck with the health kick, no more champers for you then lol!
Take care.
