Anything but Square challenge

Our lovely Lindsey has set a challenge for this fortnight
'No squares allowed'
When I saw this challenge I thought - 'oh no !! - I don't do anything but square....'
so I went to check my blank card collection to see if I had anything there before I started to think about die-cutting a card and yes - I did - I must've bought these such a long time ago I had forgotten.
From Craftwork cards I think !!
For my card today I have used 'The Wrinklies' - it is a perfect card for my FIL's birthday - think I have used it before but ho-hum it's certainly different.
I embossed the card blank before I started to layer etc and have to say think it looks good.
The DP is a new purchase from Stampin' Up called 'Sweater Weather' - gorgeous.....and embellished with a few small wooden buttons from my stash.

Hope you enjoy our challenge - please do go and take a look at the other ladybugs and give them some love....

  5. I like the way you took the photograph so you can see all the different layers and textures. Soo cool! The card really reminds me of grampa!!!

  6. Gorgeous card, a while since I played with my wrinklies!! (I realise this sounds bad but thought it would make you chuckle so I left it!!) love the papers you have used too x
