Anything but a Square or Rectangle

Evening Everyone
Another Monday, and the start of another new challenge over on the Woodware blog
This week they are looking for ANYTHING BUT A SQUARE OR RECTANGLE.
Now I must admit that a square card tends to be my favourite shape, but I'm always up for a challenge, and another favourite is the Grand Nestie scalloped circle folded in half.
I decided to make a card that I could also enter into the challenge at Christmas Cards All Year Round where the July theme is Christmas flowers / Holly.
The circular greeting on the card is a stamp designed by Jane Gill for the new Woodware catalogue. I was lucky enough to get to borrow it. It's not always what you know but who you know lol.
I made the flowers from a Nestabilities Poinsettia die set, and added some punches leaves. The border across the card is a Crafty Edger punch available from Woodware stockists.
I also added some tiny dots with my white souffle pen, and some stamped and embossed Holly using a Magnolia stamp.
I hope that you will join in with the challenges. I'm looking forward to seeing what the Design Team come up with for the rest of the week at Woodware.
