Midway Reminder to get in shape!!

Hello folks,
Just popped in to remind you that you have about a week left to enter the current challenge over at Totally Tilda.
This time the challenge is:
(No squares or rectangles and it must be a CARD!)
And don't forget we are sponsored by:

So here is my Midway creation for you:

I cut the shape of this out using my Silhoutte Cameo. The cutting file was one I bought from Craftsuprint!  If you want to have a look at the vast selection of cutting files that they have then just click on the link in my sidebar to take you there.
So not only did it cut out the basic shape, it also cut out those little flowers you can see on the base card and the circle and cut out flower that I have used as the easel stopper.

I distressed all of the edges using TH Distress Ink pad Wild Honey.
I have used Celebration Tilda from the Sweet Crazy Love collection and I have coloured the image using my Faber Castell Polychromo pencils.  The background is done using Pan Pastels.
There is a similar technique in the latest Magnolia Ink but that uses Copics - not that brave yet! LOL

This gives you a better idea of the cut out flowers.
I have added some little flowers from my stash along with a leaf pin on the base and a little bow next to the image.

Here is a side view of the card.
So, there you have it peeps.
I do hope you will find the time to pop along and join in our Shaped Card challenge at Totally Tilda this time.
Just before I go, I would like to wish everyone a very happy Easter Day. 
Don't eat too much chocolate now!! LOL
