Get in Shape

Good morning!  It's time for another fun challenge at the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

This week our assignment is Get in Shape: we want to see your shaped cards!  Wait until you see what my teamies did this week!  I had fun making a flower pot card, using the colors of the season:

SSS Oct 10 Get in Shape

The pot itself is a really easy template, folded at the bottom, and open on the other 3 sides:

I stamped the flower pot with the Hero Arts Envelope Pattern, and after adding the BoBunny rust dot rim, it was wrapped with Natural Twine.  This is how the card is held together.  The flower is made of flowers from Hero Arts Stitched Frame and Layered Flowers.

The insert pulls straight upwards from the pot and is a simple rectangle that is built upwards with a variety of flowers from Hero Arts, stamped on scraps of autumn-colored design papers:

SSS Oct 10, insert

The flowers on the insert are from these Hero Arts sets: Big & Small Flowers, Blossom Art, 3 Dotted Flowers, and 3 Leaves.  The sentiments on the pot and the insert are from the same set, Just Find Me.

So, what will you put in our gallery this week?  I can't wait to see!  As always, the generous Heidi has provided a $50.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store - will it be yours this week?

                               

I'd like to enter this into the Ribbon Girl October color challenge for this month.  Here's their photo inspiration:
