Not Square!

The challenge at Less is More is to make a CAS card that is not a square or a rectangle.  I decided I wanted to make a tag-shaped card, and when I Googled tag cards this one by Nicole Heady popped up.  I liked the scored line as well as the fact that at the top of the tag, the front and back are adhered together.  I also decided to join in with Dynamic Duos for the first time, and used their monochromatic challenge to use a light and dark blue.


For my card I used PTI round and round, which I seem to be using quite a lot lately.  I stamped it in VersaMagic Aegean blue and ocean depth.  To finish the card I added a couple of clear gems, two Martha Stewart butterflies, and a ribbon and button treatment a the top.  The paper is PTI rustic white.

Thanks for visiting!
