Don't Be Square

Hi di hi everyone!
I'm back with another card to share!
This is my DT inspiration card for the new challenge over at
Crafting For All Seasons, where the theme this fortnight is 
Here's my little card!

I made a little rocker card which features an image from our sponsor
This is Marilyn by IkesArt, isn't she stunning! 
I was tempted not to add any colour but wasn't sure of the TOU
so thought it best to add just  little touch of colour to the skin & hair
with my flexmarkers.

I cut the base card  with a Scalloped Circle Grand Nestability, then
cut the DP using a plain circle. The image was cut with smaller nesties.

I was going to add some flowers then I spotted the little butterfly
with it's little diamante's & decided to use that on top of a triple bow.
The sentiment was done on the pc & the ribbon I have used is recycled 
from a gift. So, although my card is black & white, it's green too! lol
Thanks for popping in, it's always great to see you!
I hope you can play along in the challenge this time & look
forward to visiting you!
