Trapezoid Art has some of the most original cards I have seen.
I just love the solid background showing off the awesome illustration. I would not have the patience for the intricate cutwork needed to give dimension to the flat pieces.
The giraffe shown here, and the Whimsical Tree are among my favorite cards in her shop :)

...and the winner of this giveaway is for comment number 9 (liana). My 4-year daughter who just got out of surgery this afternoon picked this number from a hat and it really helped cheering her up. Thanks to everyone who checked out my etsy store and left comments.
