Mo's Challenge # 173

Anything But Square!

 That's Mo's Challenge for this week! I guess I  should have made a shaped card,
but I cheated a bit and did one of my usual rectangular cards instead! Well, it isn't square, is it?

Can't believe I haven't used this adorable image before now!
It was really fun to color!

I've been looking for rose-patterned paper forever and finally found this
 pretty stuff.  It comes in four color ways, each as pretty as the other!

I stuck a strip of tacky tape down the middle of some double  ruffled gingham ribbon, then cut it down the middle, removed the paper and adhered it around the edge of the oval. I like the look!

Image: "Ragged Romeo" form Mo's Digital Pencil

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Cuttlebug with Nestibilities Oval die, Nellie Snellen Embossing leaf punch set, Mounting tape, Xacto knife, Tacky tape
