{ Impression Obsession DT challenge - Shaped card, Project 365 - week 50 }

Shaped card = anything but rectangle! I don't make many of these because a rectangle is so much easier, but I love this one. I will make more shaped cards from now on. I used CPS #150 for this card.
Can you tell I had fun with this one? I am in love with NEW background stamps from Impression Obsession, especially the Wood Grain (CC034). I sprayed my Wood Grain rubber stamp with Sea Foam Shimmerz Spritz to get this impression. The little house is from New Home (CL187) clear stamp set...another one of my favorites. I just love little houses. I used Stars & Stripes Pennants (G2315) rubber stamp for my "banner". These little pennants are so popular. I stamped and cut out the letters for "home" with Typewriter stamp set.

I used October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket patterned paper, Making Memories flower and Granny's Doily Journaling Tag from Elle's Studio. The frame card shape is from The Cutting Cafe'.

I hope you'll take the time to visit the other designers' blogs for inspiration! Laura, Dina, Jeanne, Jenny, Kathy, Julie, Deborah, Kelli, Rosemary and Shirley.
