CSAYL Challenge 31

I've got Mon-Weds off this week so I was able to sit down and get some stamping done today. I should have been outside cutting wood for winter but shhhh, I wont tell if you wont!

The challenge on CSAYL this week comes from Sankari, of Sankaris Sunshine Corner. She says to:

Create a card that is not your regular A2 card (A2 cards regularly measure 4 1/4" x 5 1/2") Create anything but an A2 card! It can be a circle card, a square card, a heart card, a star card a christmas tree shaped card - any shape at all!!!

I ended up doing 2 cards for the challenge because I had decided to make a joy fold card, but when all folded its measurements are those of an A2 card. I blame that on being half asleep when starting my cards,hehehe.So here is the first card I did, the joy fold:

After realizing that this card didnt fit the challenge I sat back down and got to work on a second card. This time I made sure to follow the directions :0) I created a snowglobe card, which is a shape I have always wanted to try.
