Its a Shaped Card Challenge at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenges!!

The Challenge this week over at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenges is to make a "Shaped Card".
We would love for you to join in with this challenge (make sure you use a Tickled Pink Stamps image please) and be in the running to win a great prize!
Well, to tell the truth I really havent made many cards that are not square or rectangle so I had a bit of a challenge here. I thought I'd try a circle shape. I used the largest scalloped circle nestie I had to make the folded card then I cut out another scallop circle the same size in patterned paper and attached it on the front. this is probably the smallest card (approx 10.5cm diameter) I have every made and the entire time I was designing it I really wasnt sure how it would turn out. But once it was all stuck together I fell in love with it. It was also a bit of a challenge colouring an image that was so small!
