Shape Up

Morning all.  Time for my choice of challenge at Make My Monday.  I do have a reason for choosing to 'Use Shapes' on your card.  I've been looking for an excuse to use the Shattered Triangle die from Altenew.  It was one of those 'see it and need it' purchases and then it just sat staring at me from the corner of my craft desk.  Anyway, I decided to use it for this challenge no matter what.  I will admit to shamelessly nicking the layout from this gorgeous card that I found on Pinterest. I love the layout as I have a million scraps of backing paper and I'm always on the lookout for ways to use them.  

In hindsight, I wish I'd embossed the background for added interest.  Oh well, I still have a million scraps to use.  Maybe I'll do it again.  The stamp is from a set I won long ago by Lawn Fawn.

Please pop over to the blog and play along - otherwise I won't have anything to comment on.

Thanks for reading.
