Sparkle and Glitter the Rick St Dennis Challenge - 18 January 2013

Oh my goodness me.  My husband has re-set my camera and the photos are still as bad.  I'll have to keep an eye out for a new camera sometime but we had to buy a new microwave this week and tonight to my horror a capped tooth has fallen out.  It might be able to be stuck in again or it might mean another one being made or something different so that will be c£400 - yikes.  If anyone has a decent cheap camera that takes wonderful close up pictures please let me know.

The challenge over at the Sparkle and Glitter the Rick St Dennis Challenge this week is "anything but a square".
As you can see from above my card is anything but a square.  I have folded a piece of bunting in half and stuck it to another piece folder in half and came up with this shape with its own stand.  The only nightmare is getting the shape for the backing paper but I had an idea to cut all four pieces at once (as I covered the back as well with the same papers).  I have used a Rick St Dennis image called "Desdemona" and printed out twice, colouring one in red and one in blue.  I have used four different flower punches and made flowers out of the scraps of backing paper left.  The card has been finished off with some ribbons, Papermania Glitterations, Marianne Designs scroll and a Craftwork Cards sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Sparkle and Glitetr the Rick St Dennis Challenge - Anything but a square
Whimsy Stamps - Fancy edges

Deep Ocean - Anything but square

Wonderful Birthday card! Sorry about your tooth. I know how costly dental work can be. I just hope you're not in any pain. Don't you just hate it when bills and necessary items get in the way of purchasing fun stuff?! Thanks for playing along with us at Sparkle and Glitter with Rick :)
