It's the time for another challenge over at

Ch# 14 Create your own Shaped Card 
(No pre designed shaped card files)
Begins: Sunday, June 1
Ends: Monday, June 30

A blog dedicated to the Silhouette Cutting Machines.
You MUST use a Silhouette somehow in your project.

Sponsor this month is:

(3) Silhouette Replacement Blades

Here's my shaped card

I really enjoyed making this card  I've never designed a shaped card before and so this was a steep learning curve for me!!!!  I decided to go for something quite straightforward and then got hubby involved, he drew the design into silhouette for me, and then I did all the cutting and sticking.

The windows are vellum, but the photos don't show this very well!  The two cats are die cut on my Sizzix and the Topiary Tree is from the Silhouette Store.  The house is all the design of Lazy Cats Cards.  If you would like a copy of the studio files we made, please EMAIL ME and I will send it to you.

Head in over to see what the DT has created for you inspiration and link up today.
