Geometry and pink take two ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.  Because I really wanted to play and enter several challenges again I got my Altenew Whimsical Flowers stamp set out and here is my card …

A nice 148mm square this time - it's worth it!
I didn't photograph the depth very well, apologies!
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Allsorts Challenge #377 Fabulous Florals
I don’t have any flamingo images but I do have a pink sparkly plush dog embellishment and I thought that along with stamped and watercoloured Altenew pink flowers, pink card, pink die cuts and all of that might just fit the theme
Mod Squad Challenge The Die’s The Thing
 Scrapy Land Challenge #48 Use a stamp or digital image:
I used Spellbinder dies
 Seven Hills Crafts Challenge August Geometry *

* Spellbinder circle dies are geometric, the frame can be cut into two geometric halves, the frame border and card are geometry/geometric.

I created a card titled Geometry & Pink, see here, I used my Crafters Companion hexagonal dies because I thought that was geometry meant.  When I mentioned to my OH that I wanted to come up with another entry for a geometry themed challenge he told me that squares and circles are also geometry; geometry means shapes, doh I should have asked first lol!
So I wanted to create a pink card using the pink theme at Altenew and I wanted to incorporate geometry into it so that I could also enter Creative with Stamps, Seven Hills and Simon Says Stamps Wednesday challenges.  More bonuses were that this card could be entered into the Happy Little Stampers and Scrapy Land dies challenges and because I used my Spectrum Noir AquaTints would also be good for the Spectrum Noir challenge too lol!

Once again my MISTI has come in very useful because I was able to create a stamped and masked frame for this card – I love my Miss Misti!  Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon  ttfn Karen x
