Hello Everyone,

For today I am going to be playing along with the Twofer ChallengeThe Color Throwdown, Sunday Stamps and CAS Colours & Sketches Challenges. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Stamped and colored on cold press 140lb watercolor paper.
Simple one layer card.
These colors are retro feeling and so are geometric forms.
Marrying the two together seemed to be a perfect fit.
The vertical sentiment was actually picked by my daughter.
I thought it would fit perfectly with the tall triangles.
She has a good eye, just like her mom 😉.

And here is my second card for Twofer and Sunday Stamps:

Above: Clusters of triangles colored using bold blues, yellows, and oranges. Below/Left: The sentiment fits nicely surrounded by bold triangles. Bottom/Right: A one layer card using a triangle cluster stamp and colored using Sunday Stamps color scheme.

And here are the two cards together using the same stamp.
One using subtle tones watercolor. The other card is bold and bright.

Challenges Entered:
Color Throwdown: ctd506
CAS Colours & Sketches: Challenge #285- sketch
Twofer Card Challenge: I will get to the second card soon.
Sunday Stamps: (Using Thank you card) SSC185- Summer Splash

Wow! Another great card, Shawna! I love gradation and color selection. The vertical sentiment is also perfectly matched.
I hope everything is fine with you, my friend. I am good :-)

That triangle stamp is really interesting! The simple lines and your coloring all lend well to a CAS card. Thanks for sharing it with us at CC&S! :)

Your cards work so well for all these challenges, Shawna! The cluster of triangles is terrific with all those angles and I love how you have colored them on both your cards! Great masking on the Thank You card; I love that sentiment banner! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #8! Hugs, Darnell

Wow! Your colors are perfect for our challenge! This geometric stamp is so unique! Your coloring makes it look so dimensional. Thanks for joining us at SUNDAY STAMPS!

Oo, so pretty! I love the geometrics in our bold colors - and with a big gorgeous sentiment, too - beautiful! Thanks so much for playing at Sunday Stamps!

These are just fabulous, Shawna! I love the retro look of your hello card, especially! Those colors are just amazing together, and the airiness of the design just works. Your thank you card is wonderful all dressed in those bold colors. I think it would work well as a masculine card, too. Great cards! Thanks so much for joining us at the Twofer Challenge! Bev
