Shape Up @ MAWTT

Mornings all :) 

It is my turn to host the challenge this week at 

And this week I am challenging you all to .. 
Shape Up! 
Anything but square! 

I have been dying to make a butterfly shaped card so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to knock it off my  'to do list'. 

Oh My! this turned out better than I had expected or even thought possible!  Lots and lots of dry embossing on this flutterby along with loads of my new Stampin Up Dazzling Diamonds (can you tell it just dazzled me and I could not get enough of it), what can I say, I'm a girl who loves her bling and this stuff goes a LONG way!  All that dazzling did not even make a dint in the jar, got to love that!  The Bon Voyage stamp is a rubber cling that I've had since Noah built the ark and never used, the flower is Prima and a 'last one left kind' from my stash  along with the pearl stamina's and the gold leaves under the flower.  And as I love the shabby look, TH Distress inks were also used in play on this. 

We have a great prize this week to play along for from
who has given us this great Christmas Goodies pack!
Adorable prize! and some more stuff added to my 'want list'

The girls have all stepped up to the challenge this week with some outstanding inspiration so drop on past

I so would love to see you playing along with us this week too!
