This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,

Triangles

We are showcasing The Crafters Workshop this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have them we would love to see them used.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!


I'll be honest I didn't have a clue what to do and just allow things to flow and this is what I made! You should of seen the mess I made I must have had nearly every die I own out.
So to start with I needed to use The Crafters workshop items which I had two one was the Mini Dot Square Template which I brought because it is nearly 6inches and the dots are in the scallop square. I don't own extra large dies or a machine that you can use them in and this template means I can draw round and cut out the large scallop.
The other template I have is Mini Punchinella and ran that through my big shot to emboss. I cut out the strip  I was using which was the hexagons. Now all my layers was a bit too white so lots of inking to try and bring it all together.
I always knew I was going to cheat slightly and use the MFT Banner Day die for my triangles, just imagine the top bits are not there! The patterned paper is from American Crafts.


So what was I going to do with the rest of the card Hexagons to me mean Bumble Bees and I do love the one from Circle Friends from Simon Says Stamp but what else. Initially I decided on one flower but why have one, when you can have three. I used the Flower Friend die set to cut out the flowers and leaves and I used the Flower Friend stamps set for the middle of the flower and for the leaves.
I now wish the challenge wasn't for triangles cos I think it would look striking without the banners but I used the Happy die to direct your eye and made a fish tail banner for the Birthday. Time to step away from the card.

Now you know the drill to win the chance of this fabulous prize you have to enter the challenge with a new card no backlinking and you need to enter your post using the linky thing on the challenge blog. Also you need to link to the challenge in your post or you won't be eligible for the prize.

I can just imagine how much thought you put into this card Debby, and how much time it would have taken to complete. It was well worth it though because it is beautiful, everything co-ordinates really well.
