Anything but Square... the July challenge for "Scrapology".

I've gone with a triangle shape and because it seemed an ideal chance to play with one of my new Fizzy Moon stamps - I've stuck with a Christmas theme.
Not too much by way of decoration as I thought the shape could speak for itself. I did edge the bottom of the card with some white punched fronds (Martha Stewart punch).
Aren't this pair just too cute - and so quick & easy to colour in. Most of this image is coloured with 'E' shades...the bears, the fence & the robin with some red and cool greys thrown in to finish off.
I know peel-offs are a bit like the marmite of the crafting world...well I don't hate them & I don't love them but I do think there are times when they have their place and they certainly fit the bill here. A simple sentiment and a few snowflakes help to embellish the background.
Oh, and there has to be a bit of bling - a touch of Crystal Ice Stickles to highlight the snow. A few red gems are also placed to add a bit of twinkle.
Here is the finished card standing up - all done and dusted and ready to add to the pile of cards that I showed earlier.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend folks.......................

Now this is up there as one of my favs. I love the bottom edge of the card. I must admit, I'm in the camp that think peel offs have a place, I really don't see anything wrong in them, and for sentiments their perfect

Lovely card Toni.
The fronds really set off the card.
I also think peel-offs are Ok where and when they fit.
Thanks for taking part this month,
