Don't be square

At  Moving Along with the Times  this week we are asking you not to be square - so round, oval, oblong, or whatever other shape you fancy - but no squares.
On to my card.  I have chosen the Little Trumpeter silhouette iamge to use.

For this card  I used a Ranger Big and Juicy pad and brushed several colours on to the cardstock.  I aslo added Spiced Marmalade DI.  The image was then printed over this.  The images all around the edge are from Lavinia Stamps.  My background papers are from the K & Co pad Que Sera, which I have had for several years.  The butterfly is a Cherry Lynn die, and the gems are a strip from a Prima pack.  I have dotted Diamond Stickles over the image to give the impression of fairy sprinkles.

This week we are sponsored by Stitchy Bear Stamps,

and the winner will get a $10.00 voiucher  to choose from their catalogue.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
