Moving Along With The Times 'Shape Up' Challenge

Good morning I hope today finds everyone well and for those that are not I wish you a speedy recovery.

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Moving Along With The Times and this fortnight Leesa has set us the challenge of 'Shape Up' meaning no square cards.

I decided to make something different for me although it is only a rectangle card and not a fancy shape. I made my card base from a piece of red card I got ages ago from the Papermill Shop and then took a piece of bazzill kraft card stock and firstly printed the sentiment onto it, then stamped my image and die cut the bottom edge. This is my first attempt at stamping and colouring on kraft and I really like how it turned out.

Card stock - Papermill Shop & Bazzill
Sentiment - Computer Generated
Medium - Promarkers
Dies - Spellbinder Edgeabilities
Gems - Stash

Promarkers Used:- 
Leaves - Holly, Pine & Lush Green
Baubles - Crimson, Berry Red, Red, Holly, Pine & Lush Green

Challenges I would like to enter this into:-
Celebrate The Occasion - Christmas In August
LEJ Designs - Clean and Simple
Dream Valley - Die Cuts & Punches
No Matter Which - Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays - Clean & Simple
Mema's Crafts - Anything Goes with the colour Red

Thanks for stopping by and please pop by the challenge blog to see all the other wonderful shaped creations.

Hello Kim I've been such a bad blogger lately with working so much but I hope to change that in the next 2-3 weeks!
Your card is beautiful Hunny, I have one of those LOTV images and I'm ashamed to say I haven't used it yet! Seeing your card makes me want to ink it up!! Love the fancy border - just perfect!
