Chairsma Cardz - Anything but square

Good morning, wow I can't believe that I haven't blogged for a week, how slack!! We've been very busy, we had a couple of days at Drayton Manor and then a visit to Cadburys World, I will add piccies soon!!
Right onto this weeks Charisma Cardz challenge and we are asking you to make 'anything but square' projects. I know from my own experience and blog visiting that we all love to make square cards, but it's nice to make something different once in a while.
I thoroughly enjoyed making my card for this challenge, we were very kindly sent images from our sponsor (Whimsy Stamps, Meljen designs) to play with, and I was determined to use all 3 of them. This is my first attempt at a 'stair steps card' and I think it's worked out pretty well!! I printed out the castle bigger than the other 2 images so it could set the backdrop, added a strip of dp and the carriage onto the next step and on the front I added a flowered strip of dp along with the fairy princess mouse and greeting, oh and of course I had to add some sparkles!!! The prize this week has been donated by Whimsy Stamps and is a fabby $15 gift certificate to spend in store!
Please check out the dt cards as they are all totally gorgeous as always!

Have to dash, starting work early today, as we have cleaning and stock taking to do. Can't believe my girls finish another school year tomorrow, where has the time gone? I don't finish until tomorrow!!
