Girl with Lantern

This card started off as an experiment that actually worked!


The card is for the following challenges:
Whoopsi Daisy - Not a Square

QKR Stampede - Punches and Dies

I was struggling to come up with ideas for a Not A Square card - I could have gone with rectangular but I always do those.  I then decided I would cut the edge of the card with my Spellbinders Edgeabilities.  I've used them to create layers on top of the card before but never actually used them to shape the card.  I found it needed to go through the Big Shot a few times to cut the double layer but other than that it was easy enough to do.  It has created quite a beautiful edge to this card. 

The paper that I have used comes from a christmas paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The ribbon is some satin ribbon from American Crafts.  The image is from Whoopsi Daisy - Sheet # 260.  There are four different christmas themed images on this sheet.  I have coloured the image using copic markers E43, Y00, R29 and R27 plus I have added some crystallina Kindy Glitz to the trim and some red pearls to the buttons.  I added another three larger pearls to the top of the card.
