Shaped Card

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Today I'd like to share a shaped card.  I've seen so many blog posts and videos featuring shaped cards using Spellbinders or similar dies.  So taking that inspiration, I decided to create one.  (BTW, if you want to see some really amazing shaped cards using Spellbinders dies, check out Lisa's blog http://indymermaid.blogspot.com/.) 

Here's my card -

The base of the card is cut using the largest Spellbinders Fleur de lis rectangle.  Then there is a black mat cut at 3 X 3 3/4 then a black and white polka dot mat cut at 2 3/4 X 3 1/2.  Next I used the Spellbinders Persian Accents die to cut the black piece in the center.  I used Recollections pearls from my stash and the peach flower in the center is also by Recollections.  Inside I matted the card with the same size black mat and instead of a polka dot mat I put a plain mat so I could write a note or stamp a sentiment.  This card could be used for a number of things.  I think I may use it for a thank you card.  This card has been Linked Up on the Pink Cricut Link Up Tuesday and I have also submitted it to the Die Cuttin Divas Challenge this week.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs, Paula
