...Crazy 4 Geometric Shapes

This is my sample for the C4C8 challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog, and geometric shapes are the order of the day! I've included an oval, a square, and a rectangle in my creation for today. The beautiful poinsettia and sentiment were from the new Verve set "Blessed Christmas", and the patterned papers were from Fancy Pants Designs. I added piercing along the edges of the patterned paper panels, then tied some Riding Hood Striped Ribbon around the long, horizontal panel. The layered poinsettia was stamped three times on Watercolor Paper, embossed, then colored with ink pads and an Aquapainter. Each layer was cut out and attached to the next using Dimensionals, while the sentiment was stamped and embossed directly onto the Whisper White Cardstock focal panel. After adding three Silver Brads below the sentiment, each panel was attached to the Baja Breeze Cardstock base using Dimensionals.

Now let's check out what the other C4C design team members have to share today (I'm sure you will not be disappointed!):
Thanks for stopping by today, and I will see you again tomorrow! Until then...
