Anything but a Square card

JustRite Friday Challenge #073 - "Anything But Square"  is to create a card that is anything as the title says but a square.  For this card I decided to use Spellbinders Labels 22 as the start to my card.  I placed the die so that it cut off the plate to give me the top design.  The card was first cut to a 4.25 x 5.5 size then cut with the Spellbinder. From there I used Authentique paper  "Carefree" Collection Care and the JustRite stamp Botanical Medallions and Banners.  Copic Markers E37, E34, YG 93, YG 95, YR 16 and YR 18 were used to color the botanical flowers which were cut by hand. The Mediallion was stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa and distressed with Antique Linen and edged with Vintage Photo.  Since I do not have the die I cut this also by hand  The Vintage Photo was also used on the edge of the card and flowers.  Pearl swirls and a simple bow helped finish the card.  A tag stamped from the same JustRite set was added to the bow.  Hope you enjoy.
