An Owly Christmas!

C4C8-Geometric-Christmas-wm

Hi everyone!

Are you ready for another challenge with the Crazy 4 Challenges girls!

This week our Challenge Hostess for October Vicki Garrett has given us another fun challenge. We had to create a card using at least three different geometrical shapes........Squares, Circles, Rectangles, Octagons, Triangles.......you name it, just make sure that you have three of them on!

Now at first this might look scary reading 3 different geometric shapes but then we you think about it we do this all the time so it really isn’t that hard hehe. While browsing my blogs I found a fun sketch from The Pixie Cottage which was perfect for the challenge so I decided to use that for my card.

As you can see I have a circle, 3 squares, a rectangle and then the card base which is another rectangle too. I used one of the new owl digi stamps from Pink Cat Studio … I just love those new owls!!!!!!! The image is called Christmas Stump.  It is hard to see in the photo but I added red jewels to the Christmas tree ornaments. The fancy tag at the top I cut down and rejoined so that it is the correct size for the word window punch, you can’t even see the join!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the C4C Designers cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.

Paper: White; Red; Brown; Designer Paper
