Bold Smile

Hi all!  I'm thrilled to have been invited to be Guest Designer at Just Us Girls for the month of April.  Our first challenge of the month is Bold and there are so many ways you can go with this.


I chose to go with a bold geometric design, bold colors and a bold, black sentiment.


The triangles were cut with the new Triangle Stax die in various (rainbow) colors from MFT Stamps.  The "smile" is stacked three layers high for added dimension.  I didn't add any other embellishments as I thought this was busy enough 😄


Thanks so much for visiting!  Head on over to the blog and check out the cards made by the design team - you'll be so glad you did!  I hope you have time to play along with us.

Products used:

Cardstock:  White, Black, Poppy, Orange Zest, Daffodil, Limelight, Blueberry, Purple Rain (MFT)
Dies:  Triangle Stax, Smile (MFT)

Cheers
Karren

I love the arrangement of the triangles, Karren, and in rainbow color too. The big bold sentiment balances it off perfectly.

Sorry I am late stoping by...I have may son in town for two days from Seattle and have to soak up as much time with him as possible. Anyhoo, You sure have started the month off strong with your Bold geometric card! As a lot of others have reiterated, we sure have picked a perfect guest! :) Couldn't agree more! Can't wait to see what you do for us next week Karren!
