Penny Black Challenge - Shapes x3

The challenge this week at Penny Black is to use 3 different shapes on your card (excluding card and paper shapes!) I decided to have a go at the challenge because I couldn't wait to use my new PB Toadily clear stamps!!

I had so much fun making this card, it took a good few hours to get it right, I don't normally do lots of layers on cards but I can now see how it adds to the overall standard of the card.
I decided to go for a rectangle, scalloped circle and heart as my shapes. I coloured the toads in with Lyra Aquacolours, did some doodling with a fine black pen and a white sakura souffle pen and then added some gorgeous Prima flowers, Basic Grey buttons, gems, ribbon bows and card candy.

Thanks for looking as always, I appreciate each and every one of your comments!

Love Becky xx
