Crafty Pad Challenge 21

The Challenge was to use this Octogan shape on the card quite a challenge as I am hopeless at drawing shapes.
I chose blue for the card as I have different blue papers that blend well. A small floral print was used for the background paper as it is delicate and fresh looking. Next came the the larger octagon shape in a simlar blue but with swirls on it. A plain blue octagon came next with Crafty Pad Just Ted stamped on it.
I chose a darker blue ribbon and placed three blue gems on it and finished it off with a bow. I chose to make this a Thank You card.
The Octogan does not show up well in the photo but is far more visible in the reality
