Anything but square

This week has been such a busy week I've not really had time to do much crafting, however this evening I really did feel the need to make something. I spent time on Sunday just colouring in images so I would have some ready to craft with and this is one of those images. It's a free image from Rick st Dennis for the challenge on the Sparkle and Glitter blog. This isn't my usual style of image and I wasn't sure I could do it justice, certainly need more practice with the pens, I never was any good at colouring in hair!

As the challenge is anything  but square and no sharp edges I have altered this jar, it's not square and the edges are all rounded off. I've coloured the image with promarkers and added some glitter on the jewellry but it can't be seen very well on the photos. I used a die to cut out and layer up behind the image then used flowers from wild orchid crafts and some ribbon to finish it off.

The challenge can be found here

I am also entering this into the following challenges
