Robyn's Fetish Challenge #110... no square or rectangle cards

Happy Sunday everyone!  I am feeling better and hope to have additional posts later today, explaining some stuff.
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend! :)

This week at 
we are making NO Square or Rectangle cards!
our lovely sponsor is
The winner will receive
a $20GC to The Paper Shelter store!

here is my creation using 

We had to make a shape OTHER than square or rectangle for our cards. I knew immediately I wanted to make a beer mug for this little gal!
I searched all over the internet for a mug template the only one I could find was like a tea or coffee mug. so then I looked for clip art. this was a GREEN BEER clip art for St. Patty's day. I printed it to a size I liked, covered the back with pencil, then cut out the mug. tracing the outside cut lines onto a folded (at the top) card stock piece...(I think I'll go with a side fold if I do this again)
Then I used a pencil to lightly go over the lines of colors and shading on the green beer mug, which of course came through onto the card stock by way of the penciling on the back.
I colored the mug card with PRISMACOLOR pencils and blending pencil, and then colored the CUTE BAVARIAN by THE PAPER SHELTER the same way. I cut her out mounted her on a slightly darker piece of card stock then attached her to the card on pop dots. The sentiment is computer generated and is flat.

Not to be patting my own back, but the picture TRULY does not give the mug justice.

Thanks for visiting :)
