Morning all. It's that time again. We have a new challenge over at Cardz4guyz. This time we have to use Triangles. I have to admit to being a little bit stumped for this one. Triangles aren't a shape that usually inspires me. However, I did find a card on the Cricut Design Space that had numerous triangle apertures so I thought I'd give it a go. Me, being me, cut the card shape then chopped it up so that I just had a panel for my card. I inked a background in peacock feathers distress ink and placed it behind my panel. I think, if I did this again, I'd use a contrasting colour. I'm amazed at how similar it is to my patterned card base. Anyway, after that I added the happy birthday and thought I was done. I kept looking at it and I wasn't sure about it. I felt it just needed something. I'd been using a new stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs (I've linked it on the Dies to Die for site because that's where I had mine from) and I couldn't help adding the cute little mouse so I stamped him a few more times and popped him into my triangle apertures to add a little interest. I'm much happier with it now. I hope you like it too.
Pop over to the challenge blog and have a look at the fabulous creations from the talented design team ladies. I'm sure they will inspire you to join in the fun.
