It's all about π (Pie)

Hi everyone,

Welcome to our Paper Pros challenge for March. This time round our challenge is hosted by me!!!!

This month the date of our challenge in the USA is March 14 (3.14) which also happens to be Pi (π) Day! Pi (Greek letter "π") is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant - the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter - which is approximately 3.14159.  So the theme for our challenge is Pi Day - think pie or circles or both with a little green thrown in for Patrick's Day which is on the 17th. 

As you can see I was thinking "pies" when I made my card for our challenge. I received the oven from Lawn Fawn for a Christmas gift so I knew I wanted to use that with a pie inside. After search for someone holding a pie, I discovered this cute digital stamp from Imagine That of Gertie Goose which also comes with the gooseberry pie sentiment.

I created a kitchen scene using the Pop it Ups Lots of Pops Pop Up Card die behind the oven. I also used the pop up die included in the Hot Air Balloon die set behind the goose, so it looks like the goose is just in front of the oven.

When I created my card I forgot all about the second part of the challenge which was to include green in my card. Fortunately because of the designer paper I selected for the background of my pop up I used a fair bit of green. Phew!!!!!

Here is a look at the pop up card taken at a different angle so you can see the pop up part of the card a little better.

For the front of my card I used a larger pie from a Hero Arts stamp I have in my stash. The sentiment and π symbol are computer generated.
