No squares or rectangles at Fab'n' Funky Challenges

 Good morning, Fab'n' Funky challenges are back after the Christmas break, I'm hosting this fortnight, I've chosen the theme of 'shaped cards' anything but a rectangle or square. I made a circular card using some stamps from Lavinia and Darkroom Door, the background created with Distress Oxide Inks and a Lavinia Stencil, some clear drops added to finish. 

My lovely team have come back refreshed after their break, creating some fabulous cards to inspire you, please hop over and take a look, our challenges are open for two weeks if you wish to play along- and I hope you do!

Thanks for visiting

Love the design of this one Chris and great use of your Lavinia stamps. Daisy is doing OK, results confirmed what we all suspected but they feel confident they removed it all, so fingers crossed.

What a GREAT use of circles, Chris! The colors are "mystifyingly gorgeous" in this fantasy card. I think the stencils really bring the life to your dancing mouse and butterflies! Really clever! huggers, de
