Squigglefly "Shaped Cards"

What a great challenge we have at Squigglefly this week! Show us your Shaped Cards! I really like using my Spellbinders Label Seventeen for making shaped cards. 
You can watch a wonderful tutorial by Becca on how to create tight mats with your spellbinders here. It works like a breeze!!
I used the image Wine and Grapes from Squigglefly to create my card. I love this image! I created my background using my new modified technique here. Below are the colors I used.
Here's a close up of my sentiment. It's from Whiff of Joy.
I hope you all of you in the U.S. are recovered from Mother's Day and are ready to get some cardmaking done ; )
Come and join our challenge at Squigglefly!!

Gorgeous Dana! By the way I saw your tutorial over at iCopics on sky and grass, and I can't wait to try it! I just have to order some refills first; I only have a handful of them and they're all earth tones. ;)

Wow Dana this is gorgeous! I love the shaped cards and was wondering about the Grand Spellbinders dies sizing. I'll have to watch Becca's tutorial and I watched yours too. What a fabulous way to make your background, I love it! Hugs, Jan
