Shaped card for Deep Ocean DT

Evening everyone,
Well it's been a lovely warm day today, so much warmer than we normally have here in the UK for April! I've been enjoying the weather by walking to get the kids from school in the afternoon which is a good 25 minutes walk each way - great exercise for me and not too much for the kids either.
 
Anyway, the reason for the post tonight is (of course) the next new challenge has just started over at
with a theme of
Shaped cards
 


 
 
Supplies:
Go Kreate shaped card die
Spellbinders labels twenty three and foliage
LOTV image and sentiment
Magnolia doohickey dies  - heart swirl branch, doily flower, doily
cheesecloth and gems from stash
 
We have the lovely Sandy sponsoring us this fortnight from:

with this awesome prize!
 
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!
I'll be back in the morning with my new card for Midweek Magnolias :)
