Santa's Flight 6

It is easy for a card to get boxy - endless series of rectangles stacked on top of each other.  One of the great things about this stamp is that it adds the look of a curve even when there isn't one anywhere else.
The designer paper is a leftover from a TAC workshop - it was already cut to size!  The image is colored with  pencils and highlighted with glitter pen.  Distressing also breaks up the boxiness, as does the circle paper clip and ribbon.

Loving this card. I so agree with you on the boxiness of cards and for that reason I like shaped cards, etc.
This is gorgeous and I love the flow of it.

Hi Juliet! Aside from loving how you signed your name, your card is great! I really enjoy the "animals!" for our challenge! Such a joyful image and you are right...boxy is usually the way. I like that you stepped out of the box for this challenge! Great coloring btw. Good luck in your challenges, and of course ours at Forever friends, Come Again! Divine Love, Samara
