Dottie's World Challenge - Shaped Card

Louise set the challenge this week over at Dottie's World - to make a shaped card; anything except a rectangle or square! Now, this is something I'm not particularly good at, but here is my effort. I used Madison in Japan from the World Tour Collection, coloured her with Copics R05 and BG05, and added these beautiful orchids which I've had for ages. I know orchids don't grow like this, but hey! - I put it down to artistic licence, and the fact that they wouldn't fit on one branch. The shaped card was cut on my Silhouette, but I'm still experimenting with different card weights and it found the Bazzill slightly tricky - some adjustments needed there!
Had a great day at Harrogate yesterday and met up with some crafty pals - boy, was it busy!!! I didn't spend too much though, but you may see a couple of new stamps appearing soon.
Have a lovely Sunday xxx
