Hellooooooo there.  Hope you're all well.  First I'd like to say welcome to my newest follower.  Unfortunately, blogger hasn't put them in order so I don't know who you are.  I'm glad to have you though.

This weeks challenge #158 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS is 'Anything but Square'.  That can be a bit of a challenge as square cards seem to be the norm for most of us at the moment.  Our sponsor is DOCTOR DIGI who has some really fun images, you should take a look if you've not seen them already.  My choice for this week was the very handsome lady, Brunnhilde.  Being a great fan of Opera, I couldn't resist her.  I had a plan - my card was going to be totally music themed, but somehow I went completely off track and ended up with this, lol.

Brunny is mounted onto 2 Spellbinders dies.  The flowers and lacy semicircles (large sunflower doily) are done with Cheery Lynn dies. (I absolutely love them). I used Marianne dies for my leaves and a Martha Stewart punch for my borders. The papers are from the divine pack from GCD studios 'Paris Nights'. Finally, I accented a few bits with some pearls and added one of my own sentiments.

Entering into:
CHEERY LYNN #70 - Doilies.
LITTLE RED WAGON - Get in shape.
THE PAPER SHELTER #102 - Punches and dies.
NUTCRAFTERS #38 - Something beginning with B.
CRAFTY SENTIMENTS - Pretty in pink.
CUTTIN' & STAMPIN' #9 - Use flowers.
TUESDAY THROWDOWN #137 - Lace and doilies.
WHOOPSIDAISY - 2 patterned papers.

Oh I love this one for lots of reasons. First the image is wonderful, love her. Second the papers you used are sweet and third the cut is very different and I have not seen it ever before but will diffidently have to try it. Thanks so much for the inspiration and sharing that with us at Created with Love Challenges.
