Penny Black at Allsorts - A different shape

Every so often we are required by one challenge or another to make something that makes us turn to the Glitter Girl boards!    I know but hopefully the treatment they get here gives them an air of creditability LOL

The challenge this month at Penny Black at Allsorts is to make anything you want provided it is not either a square or a rectangle.   They are also having a DT call if you are interested in joining the team.

For my card i used the Bookatrics as you can see using the outside edge of each embossed layer at the cutting guide and then the inside edge at squiggle draw a silver leaf line around.   Penny Black Stamps the Poppy and the Birds of Peace.   Hero Arts sentiments.

Yes it is another Poppy card for Janet's appeal. and entry to The Stamp Man Challenge.
