Totally Ladybug Tuesday! ~ Anything but square!

It's Tuesday and time for another Totally Ladybug Tuesday

This time the challenge was set by the one and only lovely Ladybug Lisa! She set the challenge of anything but square! I started several non square cards and kept on changing my mind!! I ended up with this... 


First time I have made a card like this with the image raised over the fold of the card. I kept it pretty simple in embellishment and sutmbled across a pack of felt embellishments from Basic Grey, the colours matched some BG papers so away I went! 


The image I used is Flower Ruby, this is the 2nd flower ruby I have had in my hands, the first one had broken legs ... I also just happened to break this one aswell LOL ... but luckily not the actual image, just some of the edge! I used my EK Success punch along the bottom, a few purple pearls, and the lovely big felt flower which I mentioned above. The scallop circle is actually another sheet of BG paper which I mounted directly onto another card scallop circle. The image is coloured in pink and purple copics, nice effect I think, although not to everyones taste! 

So thats it from me, hope you will join in with our challenge this week over at the Totally Ladybug Tuesday challenge blog
