Mo's Challenge #162

Don't Be Square!

Happy Thanksgiving to all those in the USA!

The theme for Mo's Challenge this week is "Anything But Square." Since I never make square cards, I guess I could have just gone with my regular  5" X 7" rectangular cards, but I felt that might be cheating! LOL!

Instead, I went with a card shaped like a kite and used Mo's cute "Kite" image."
The 'kite' dimensions are 5 1/2" X 8" and it opens along the upper left hand side.
The 'tail' is made with baker's twine and scraps of DP.

Images: "Kite" from Mo's Digital Pencil, SU! stamped sentiment

Tools: Copics, Cuttlebug with Nestibilities die, SU! oval punches, Xacto knife

Papers: SU! Pacific Point, Bazzil textured CS, Neenah white, Basic Grey DP

Embellishments: Baker's twine

Now it's your turn to make a card or project using one or more of Mo's wonderful images 
and enter Mo's Challenge for a chance to win a $5.00 gift certificate.

Thanks for stopping by!
