Don't Be Square

Good morning everyone.
I hope you are all well and enjoying the fabulous weather most of us have been having here in the UK.
It's my turn to host my first challenge over at 
and I'm so excited!!
So, my challenge this week is:


We are very lucky to be sponsored this week by the fabulous:
Stitchy Bear Stamps

And the lucky winner will receive....

The DT were lucky enough to have some images from Stitchy Bear Stamps to play with and this is what I have done with mine:
I created my basecard using the largest scalloped circle from the Spellbinders Grand Nestie set - I cut two and then scored the back one about 1cm down and adhered to the front one just at the top.
The DP was a scrap piece I found in my paper box when I was having a 'tidy up' - it was amazing what else I found in there that I had completely forgotten I had!!!!

I printed the silhouette image -Floppy Lattes - Little Trumpetter - from Stitchy Bear Stamps
 and then ran it through the Xyron and covered it with an irridescent glitter for amazing sparkle!!!
Flowers and adhesive gems from stash to finish it off.

Hope you can join us this week.
I can't wait to see your wonderful projects.

 Challenges I would like to enter:

Amber's Craft & Stuff - Sparkle & Shine
Crafts & Me - Anything Goes
There's Magic in the Air - Mystical Creatures
Gingerloft - Make it Sparkle
Little Claire's - Things with Wings

So yesterday I said I would share some exciting news with you - well exciting for me anyways and here it is:
