Beccy's Place - Challenge 3 - not a rectangle

Nearly missed this challenge. Time just flies by, the days merge and the hours disappear.

For Challenge 3 we had to make something that wasn't a rectangle so I made another diamond shape card.  This time it has a top fold, I think this is a tent fold but not sure.  It was supposed to be a normal side opening but when I cut the squares for the background I did it facing the wrong way and I didn't like the card leaning backwards so it became a top fold card.  The image is a freebie one Beccy gave away awhile ago.  Coloured with Copics and Promarkers,  The background is squares coloured in the same colours as the image and stuck onto a template of the shape them cut to the right size and stuck on the card.  Then, if I had a brain cell, is when I should have applied the peeloffs but until I stuck the pony on I didn't realise how unfinished the squares looked, so with a bit of fiddly manoeuvring I applied the silver wavy peeloff.  The number 2 was made using a punch I created using CraftArtist.  It was punched from the backend of the pony and coloured the same.  When I find my craftwork sentiments I will be putting on a Happy Birthday sentiment.

Great job Poppet! I don't think I've seen a card shaped like this one... it's great to see something a bit different. I love the patchwork look and the way you cut the two from the image... very clever!
