Sarah Kay Challenge 3 - too posh to be square

The Sarah Kay challenge this week is Too posh to be square, so no square cards, or books, coasters, altered art etc. Here's my take on the challenge


To answer the questions I have had by email - the shape is hand drawn and cut as is the scalloped mat (just got lucky that the shape and size fitted the scalloped scissors I was using without too much tweaking). I'm okay cutting other peoples files with the Craft Robo - but designing them?? Uh oh, I leave that to the professionals lol. I got the idea for the card this week when I was having a clear out and a heart shaped gift tag fell out of a box I was moving and landed on it's side and the idea was born. Not often I have a eureka moment I can tell you lol.



The image is coloured with a combo of Distress Inks and Tombow markers (I wanted soft and pretty and wasn't getting that from the inks alone so combined the two and they work really well together I think). The papers are from the Making Floral Cards magazine, the patchwork paper is gorgeous. The scalloped mat is DCWV from the Brights stack.
Thanks for looking,
