Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Don't be Square!!!

Whoop Whoop it's Tuesday and time for a new, Sassy Cheryl's Challenge and sweet, talented, Jasmina has given us a fun and possibly challenging theme...Don't be Square!!:

I decided to use this sweet image called, Come on Get Happy, because, although I think Sassy Cheryl designed it as a Valentine image...  I envisioned it  as a young man throwing his heart into the great outdoors and dreaming of traveling the wonders of the world by Air....he has his bag packed and ready to go....  I colored my guy and then cut him out in a circle and cut a larger circle with my cricut.  I used two oval scalloped frames for the under detail.  The base is a cardboard frame cut with the cricut...it was a cricut night and also cut the Old world dp in the same shape just a bit smaller, so the cardboard showed around the edges.  The outside edges were sponged with Tim Holtz sponge paint.

My embellishments are some of my favorites.  Wood die cut plane sponged in brown and blue distress inks and the wood die cut suitcase.  The Tim Holtz Journey label was one of my purchases from Archivers, which is closing,  as was the Love bulb...I hate to see a LLS close, but it is good for my pocket book.  I spent a lot of money there over the years and will miss them.  I hope you like my little rectangle shaped, not square, photo frame altered to showcase this adorable sassy image.

Be sure to stop by the Challenge blog and check out the rest of the DT, Not square projects and see what they have created.  Be sure to grab a Sassy Cheryl's image and play along with the challenge for a chance to win two images of your choice in the random drawing held after each challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative week :)

He does look like he is trying to take it all in. I love all the goodies you have in this card. It has to be going to a very special person. In my house, it would be displayed on my shelf until I could part with it. LOL

Sorry about your LSS. I work at mine, so I really would hate to see it close. Ours is our local hangout for all the crafters and we would really miss it if it closed.
