Hello Again,

This is my second card for today and do hope you enjoy it. For today I am playing along with Inspired by All The Little Things, CAS(E) this Sketch, and Just Us Girls challenge blogs. So let's get to it.. Here is my card for today, enjoy.

Triangle stencil, black and white ink, and some acrylic paint
are materials I used for the background.
Triangles from CTS sketch work beautifully with ATLT photo inspiration.

 Details showing the layered sentiment and a touch of golden bling. 

Challenges Entered:
Inspired by All The Little Things: #15- Photo Inspiration
CAS(E) this Sketch: CTS173
Just Us Girls: Trend Week #343- Vellum


Our family was sitting at the dinner table one night talking about our favorite shapes. My daughter posed the question to me. I had to think about this one because, as adults, you don't commonly think of your favorite shape. After some thought I came up with circle (no surprise to Monika Reeck) because there aren't any sharp angles. The question then went to my son who is eight. 
'Triangle!' he said
 I ask 'Why?' 
Because it is a whole lot better then being a square!' (Not knowing the slang for being a square). 

Well that should do it for me. I am going to walk the dog till my feet fall off! Thank you for joining me again! Take care all and happy days!

All the best,

Love your card Shawna! And had to chuckle at your family dinner question. Never thought about having favorite shape either. You captured the inspiration photo over at IBATL and love that added piece of velum under your sentiment! All in all a great card! Thanks for taking that time to join us at Just Us Girls!

Wow, Shawna!
Great card !! I was sure that the golden triangles! So beautiful you used colors that give the impression as if it were gold elements, which reflect the image, giving them a different color. It is unusual!
I hope you know what I mean :-), do not I guarantee for the translation of what I wanted to say: - ((
