Rogue Shape Up Challenge

Hi folks!  I bought some new stamps from Rogue Redhead Designs, and I've been itching to get them inky.  There is a new challenge on their blog - Shape Up.  We are being challenged to make a card or project with the following three shapes - circle, square, and rectangle.  Yup, all three of these shapes have to be on the card.  It took me a while of thinking about it, and I came up with this.

I stamped the trees from the new set, Nature Notes, onto some blue patterned paper (square).  That was cut out and adhered to a black layer which I've used the Torn Frames technique on.  I needed something behind the trees, and I found my old stash of Magic Mesh.  The sentiment is also from the Nature Notes set (rectangle), and then I added a couple of buttons for the circle requirement.  The card base is an A2 size, so that's a second rectangle for the challenge.

I love that sentiment - so perfect with this image of trees.  Here's hoping you have a great weekend!
