Shaped Card Challenge

Yeah, It's Wednesday and I can see Friday in the near future!!!  It's time for another Challenge over at All That Scraps, this time we are asking to see your shaped cards!  At first I was a little unsure of this one and then I went through my Spellbinders and viola, I have lots of large shapes to make my cards with.  I measured a half inch less on all four sides, added the other half inch to the left and scored it and then added that to the back so it's an actual card. 

Today I am using:
I also added a Flourish and flowers from LaLaLand and a Marianne Parasol die I just got in the mail.  OMGosh this Parasol die was difficult to cut out.  It wanted to stay in the die and tears easily.  I finally had to try that trick I read about.  I put wax paper between the die and my card stock and it came out much easier.  I may have been using too thick of a card stock for this particular die, but the trouble was worth it, because I love it! lol.
I also cut out my Spellbinder and adhered to the blue paper and then cut around it to get the larger shape.  I cut out the designer paper with the same die and cut that down smaller.  I found if I went around the whole thing with my copic pen that it was easier to see where to cut out. 
Have you ever used Viva Pearl Pen?  Irina uses this all the time in her flowers.  So I bought some that had been in my bag for about 9 months and went to use it.  First I did a test pearl on scratch paper and then I went to the nearly finished card and a great big huge glob came out.  It covered the top right hand flower, across her legs and part of the big flower on the left.  I got my baby wipe out and was like, "please no, no, no, no."  lol.   So I had to replace the top flower and you know, a little yellow here and there never hurt anything, lol.   Geez!  I still love my pearl pen but I think I might shake it down next time before I use it! 
Okay that's all I got today, I hope you are having a fabulous week!  I cannot wait to see your fabulous creations.
