Crafting Musketeer's -- Anything but Square

Good Morning Blog land,
As it is the middle of the month I am here with my very 1st DT card for Crafting Musketeer's. The challenge this month is 'Anything but Square' and it is sponsored by the fab Katy Sue Designs. The prize on offer is this brilliant CD rom

Also over at Musketeer HQ we are celebrating our 1st Birthday.  For our birthday celebration , we will be doing our usual prize for the winner, but also there will be small mystery prizes for the top 3. Plus the top 3 will have the chance to GDT with us alongside the winner. So why not pop on over and check out the fab work by the DT and come and play along with us.

For my card I have used an image from the CD which I own and LOVE, here is what I created.

I love this show design and the blue and red together. I decided to run with these two colours when putting my card together as you can see below

  I have used some Ivory centura pearl card stock from Crafters Companion as my card base. I used a stencil I have had for years (cant remember where its from) to create the card shape by drawing around the stencil. I have used Co'ordinations and embossed with the 'knit one pearl one' die'sire embossing folder and then sanded it back to create my red mat.  I used my new 6x6 Scruffy little cat paper pad (Crafters Companion) and found that gorgeous shade of blue textured paper and then I cut the image down and inked around the edges using cut and dry blending foam.

I created the sentiment in DoCrafts digital designer and just printed it out and inked the edges to match the topper. Still just using those 2 colours.  This is very CAS for my usual style but I really wanted to show off the topper so had to 'sit on my hands' to stop myself over embellishing it lol.
