Hi everyone, 
it's mid month inspiration over at the Just for Fun challenge and I had great fun making my card for it. You will find the challenge HERE.
 I seen this shape on Create and Craft and it caught my eye so I went and tried to make it myself. Anyone who knows me know that I love a challenge and I love playing when maths comes into the equation. 

So I took a piece of A4 card and folded it in half, then measured 3.8cm /1.5" in from each corner and took the corner off at the diagonal. It's a very pleasing shape
 Then I matted and layered the gold mirri card and patterned paper. The paper was only 6" sq so I inserted a contrasting piece to make it wider. The topper is from Hunkydory and I cut and assembled the flowers by hand with a tiny bought flower for the center. I cut the leaf shapes from patterned paper.

I love how it turned out and encourage you to try making some flowers yourself and also try the card shape. Try it on some copy paper to start with.

Have fun and I love to read your comments.
