OSAAT Challenge # 253 No Square or Rectangular Cards.

Hello to all my friends and fellow bloggers.

**Please scroll down if you are looking for my 
Christmas Card Club card. **

 I'm here today to share my DT card for OSAAT.  As you can see the challenge is not to make a square or rectangular card. I am using Lady Pirate from Ike's Art which you can find here at Stitchy Bears Digi Outlet.

My Card

Black card - Rymans
Backing papers - Kanban "Rope Stripe" and "Shells on Driftwood"
Centre stepper base card die - Presscut
Skull and crossbones - cut from some backing paper
Map - freebie digi  printed on parchment
Jute ribbon - Hobbycraft
Shells - from stash
Pearls -  The Hobby House
Promarkers to colour

I used the Presscut die so that I could make the card base black and it seems to work well with the papers.  Quite a fun card I think.  I love the Lady Pirate and since I didn't want to cover too much of the designer paper I decided to fussy cut.  I attached the shells with hot glue and I did wonder if they would be too heavy but they are fine.  The card has been standing up for a couple of days, they are still firmly attached  and the card hasn't buckled.

I hope you decide to join us in  our challenge.  This is what one lucky person could win - 5 digi images and a paper pack.

Well that's all from me for today.  Hope everybody is well.

Take care.
