Happy Everything

Happy Monday Friends!

Over the weekend I spotted a 'new to me' challenge called Daring Cardmakers.
I found their challenge theme very interesting so couldn't help but play along!


And that theme is 'Back to Basics'!
Meaning ... choose one basic geometric shape (square, circle, triangle, etc.) and one primary color (red, blue, yellow or green) and make them the focus of your design.  What a GREAT idea!!!

I began by using the Memory Box 'Bubbles' stencil & Tim Holtz Distress Oxide 'Cracked Pistachio' to create my background.  Then using the Tutti Designs 'Scalloped Stitched Nesting Circles', I die cut the largest die and sponged the same Oxide ink on it.  Then I continued to step down the dies to cut the three frames.  Ending with the small circle which I popped up and used for the focus panel.


 For my sentiment I used the Penny Black die set called 'Awesome'.
Penny Black - Dies - Awesome

I first die cut it from green ... didn't like it ... then cut from white ... still didn't like it ... then from black!
I didn't like any one of them by themselves so I stacked them ... black on the bottom, then green then white on top and I was happy!  Plus it gave me added dimension ... love that!
