Anything but Square

This week I have tried something that I have never done before... I created a card that did not use a card blank or a single piece of card folded in half!!!

I managed to create a card that was Anything But Square.  The good news was that it was easy and I like it so much I think I will be doing it again.

The question is why did I create a different shaped card, well over on the 'Sweet Stampin' Challenge' blog the challenge for this week was this...
This week we want to see your anything but square cards.  You can go rectangle of course but we'd really love to see you being a little more adventurous!!  Some of the team made circle cards for the first time so why not experiment, if we can do it so can you!
Over the weekend I had spent some time colouring in a pile of images using my ProMarkers and this card featured one of those images (the Pirate was from the 'DigiStamp Boutique').  I cut the image out using one of my Labels dies and decided to use the largest size to create the card. 

I used a green cardstock & cut 2 shapes, then used my Hougie board to score about 1/2 cm from one edge and placed the 2 pieces together (coloured side out) with double sided tape along the folded section.

I then used my Moss Green distress ink to give the edges a bit of colour before mounting the Pirate on the front.

All in all a very simple card, but I think it does look good!
