Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Must be Tuesday!!! Guest Designer Challenges

Yep, it is Tuesday and that means Sassy Cheryl's Challenge.  Our hostess this week is the wonderfully talented Lily, who chose the theme,  Anything but a Square.  Here is my card:

Isn't this little, Raggedy, called A Fat little Raggedy,  just the cutest little thing.  I always loved my traditional Raggedy Ann doll my mother made when I was little.  I tried to color her in more vintage colors in beiges and blues.  Calico prints were always big in vintage everyday use. and I love this dp for my vintage cards right now.  I used the same dp for hte flowers which I distressed and staged the flower petals to be less than perfect, 
The ribbon is dyed seam binding which has been heat treated for the vintage look.  I really want to try this, I have bought the seam binding just haven't taken time to make any yet.
I know the Challenge was to make a card anything but a square and I technically made a rectangle so it qualifies.  I wanted to use my cute little Raggedy and I think an Oval might have fit my vintage touch I wanted, but a circle would have been too modern.
Be sure to check out the DT challenge cards, I know you won't be disappointed.
Important Information about the Guest Designer Challenge.  The next two challenges will be used to choose the next Sassy Cheryl's Guest Designer for a month.  The Contest will run for this challenge and the next Challenge as well and the DT will choose the Guest Designer.  We would love to have you play along and be the next Guest Designer. 
As always, Sassy Cheryl's has new images for you and they are super as always.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
