Creative Inspirations Challenge #42 - My last DT card

Well another fortnight rolls on by and it is time once again for another challenge at Creative Inspirations.  Firstly, what a fabulous turnout for our last challenge - thank you to all those who entered.  Remember to stop in at the challenge blog and see who the lucky winners were.
So on to the next challenge - and this time the challenge has been set by ME!  I love to see your creativity out there in blogland so for this challenge I want to see a Shaped Card - no squares or rectangles.  I have seen some awesome creations in the past so I am looking forward to seeing what you all come up with - mind you there is a down side - I have to pick a top 3 so be kind to me!!
Sadly this is my last DT card for Creative Inspirations as I have decided to step down from the DT after this challenge.  You know how it is sometimes - there just aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done.  I work full time and am on five other DT's apart from this one, I work full time and I have a home to run so sadly something had to give - now I did think about letting the house go to rack and ruin and starving my DH and DD but that just didn't feel right somehow! LOL
I would just like to say a huge big thank you to Jude for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the DT at Creative Inspirations and I know we will keep in touch through the RAK club hun.  Thanks also to the rest of the DT for giving so much inspiration when frankly sometimes mine was lacking.
OK, on with the challenge and here is the card I made for it:
I thought this little chap looked so sad I just felt it fitted in with a "Sorry I forgot your birthday" card.  I stamped a flower image in embossing ink on the dark blue die cut and then chalked over them with pearlescent chalks (if you look hard you can see them - honest).
Here's a little close up for you:
Our sponsor for this challenge is Fantastic Ribbons who are offering our winner a bumper bag of mixed buttons.
So remember to stop on by the DT's blog - including all the new members - for some inspiration - there are some awesome cards on show - especially the lovely little teapot!!
So off you go and get creating and most of all - have fun.
I shall enter this card into the challenges at:
