SCRSC42: Shaped card

Happy Tuesday everyone! Welcome to a brand new Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenge! This week we would like to see you create a SHAPED CARD (anything but the usual square or C6 card!).

I only have a standard cuttlebug and a few standard size nestabilities sets (and didn't want to make a small shaped card), so I decided to have a go at making a centre step card.  This is the first time I have made one - it was so easy and I love the end result (even though it was almost impossible to photograph it well!). I followed this template by Sandy but changed the measurements to fit the image I wanted to use.

I used my Daffodil Charlotte SCRS stamp and some scraps of paper from my MME Stella & Rose 'Gertie' paper pad.  I've been trying to resist buying the Hattie pad, but I think I may have to give in and at the very least buy a couple of the 12x12 papers in the patterns that I just 'can't do without' from this line, LOL!

The sentiment on the front of the card is a stamp from the Whimsy Stamps Friendship Ticket Sentiments stamp set, and the sentiment inside the card that reads "If friends were flowers I'd pick you" is from the Whimsy Stamps Fragrant Rose stamp set.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

- Allsorts #102 Use 3 different stamps (I've used 1 image stamp and 2 different sentiment stamps)
- Art Impressions #15 Bling, glitter, sparkle
- Craft Us Crazy #7 Flowers
- Crafty Catz Quote or Sentiment
- Crafty Sentiments Flowers
- Crazy 4 Challenges #86 Lots of Flowers
- Flutter By Wednesdays #153 open
- My Mum's Craft Shop #4 Cute and Girly
- Prairie Fairy Friday #52 For the Girls
- Raise The Bar #65 Flower Power
- Some Odd Girl Shaped Card
- Southern Girls Let's hear it for the girls
- Squigglefly #97 Shaped Cards
- Stamp Insanity Bling
- Word Play Weekend challenge #1 Flowers
