I promised Karen Barber a card with a photo of hydrangeas on it. When I was pulling up the photo I wanted to use, I thought it would work well with today's challenge for a non-square card. I printed enough photos for two cards, but as I have discovered the hard way that you can't heat-emboss photos, Karen's card will have to wait till I print another photo!
Base layer is cut with the largest circle Nestabilities. In order to have a complete circle on the front, I like to cut the card first with a small hinge, and then cut a full circle to layer on it. If it's a plain and not a scalloped circle, I then trim a tiny bit of the bottom of the back of the card base, so that it will stand firmly.
The other two layers are Blossoms 1 and 2, one cut from Basic Grey Sugar Rush and one from my photo. I stamped a swirl on it with Peeled Paint and then added Stickles. Butterfly was punched from a second photo, edged with a marker and lightly wiped with Liquid Pearls for an iridescent finish. I added Liquid Pearls round the blossoms, and little touches of Stickles round the pink base.

"What would happen if we all tried to be like Santa and learned to give as only he can give: of ourselves, our talents, our love and our hearts? Maybe we could all learn Santa's beautiful lesson and maybe there would finally be peace on Earth and good will toward men."
