Totally Papercrafts #57 Shaped Cards

We have a great challenge for you at Totally Papercrafts this week - we want you to get your thinking caps on and create a  
Yes... we know that rectangles and squares are shapes, but we'd like to see something a little different. Surprise us! :D)
If you want some inspiration, check out the fab work of my teamies over on the blog.

For my card I used the 'Lovely Little Apron' image from this week's sponsor - Meljen's Designs.
I increased the size of the apron to  175% and printed it onto my DP, (Gcd Studios, Tea Time) then attached it to a top fold card and cut around the shape.
I printed out the pocket and attached that with foam pads. I was going to put a slim sachet of Options turkish delight hot chocolate inside, but it just wouldn't fit, so I stamped a Happy Birthday tag and put that in instead!!!
It was easy to gather the lace up with a simple running stitch and then it was sewn in place.
Finally I added some ribbon and a bow, and the adhesive, pink pearls.

Challenges - 
Cupcake Craft - Pink Polka Dots (hope there's enough on the ribbon)
Fab 'n' Funky - Make It Girly
Simon Says - Anything Goes
ABC Challenge - P is for Pearls
