What I used:
Our Daily Bread Designs Christmas Door
SU old olive, basic black, GP white
Basic Grey designer paper
Memento black, Versafine black, Ranger antique linen and brushed corduroy

Get In Shape...

No this isn't my todo list, tho getting in shape certain needs to be on it, rather it is the title of this weeks Papertake Weekly challenge.  You are challenged to use 3 shapes on your card.  On mine I used a square, a rectangle (which is a bit hidden behind all my embellishments) and the oval-ish shape of ODBD elegant ovals matching stamp and Spellbinders.
Make sure you pop over to the team blog and play along with us. Check out what the rest of the team has done and show them some love.
What I used:
Our Daily Bread Designs Elegant Ovals Frames and Scripture Collection 7
SU basic black, sahara sand, bordering blue
Versafine black
clear ep, black brads, prima flowers
elegant ovals spellbinders
