SHOPPING OUR STASH #238 - Bent Out of Shape

Good morning crafty peeps! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we challenge you to make a shaped card! I'll admit I was a little nervous about this one. I don't usually do shaped cards, maybe a round card once or twice a year, but nothing major. Luckily, thanks to Pinterest, I found a relatively simple shaped card to CASE, and bonus, even a template to print out! Check it:

 Here's the inside:

Ok, I realize that an apron isn't that much of a stretch for a shaped card. Baby steps, people. There's a lot packed into this card: coloring, fussy cutting, decorative punches and scissors, and that frilly gingham ribbon! Love! 

Ready to play along? Sure you are! Whether you make a simple shaped card like mine, or something elaborate, we want to see it! Just link up at Shopping Our Stash, and while there, please check out what my teammies came up with and leave them some bloggy love! Thanks for visiting!
