The Flower Challenge #19

I have some exciting news to share today.  I am one of the newest members of the Design Team at The Flower Challenge.  I put my name in during their last challenge and waited patiently to see if I would be one of those chosen.  Thanks to Aileen, Viv and the rest of the team for letting me work with them on this wonderful challenge.
I don't usually do shaped cards so the first shape I thought of was a circle.
I place my MFT circle die over the folded edge of my card base, cut it and then sliced off a bit of the back so it would stand up.  I placed a scalloped circle over the top to which I added a flower from Altenew stamped with HA ink. I heat embossed part of the sentiment from PTI with Platinum and stamped the rest in Onyx Black.

Please check out the cards that the Design Team has for your inspiration and then make a shaped card of your own.  We would love to see you in the gallery.
