DV #231 Shaped Cards, no Squares or Rectangles

Our challenge today at Dream Valley, and Sponsored by The Paper Shelter, is shaped cards. Any shape you like as long as it’s not a square or a rectangle.

I have used an image from The Paper Shelter called Coffee Break, which I coloured with polychromos pencils. My shape is made with Sue Wilson’s noble octagon dies, as are all the mats and layers. The papers are from Craft Consortium from their Watercolour and Light Tones Grunge papers. Gems also from my stash.

I made up my own sentiment as the card is for my Daughter who, when not working, is either taking photos of birds and wildlife or editing them!

I am entering this into:-
