CASE this Sketch #140, another Virginia's View Entry and another card entry for the Superstar Card Contest

Happy Sunday everyone!! I hope you all had a nice weekend.

My weekend was pretty quiet. Chris and I did go out for dinner both Friday and Saturday night. Nothing earth shattering but nice to get out of the house.

Today I walked down to an art fair with my neighbor that the town has every year. I love to look at the art and read the artists' biographies they have in their booths. I could not imagine doing what they do for a living. What if no one walked in and looked? What if I sold nothing the whole weekend? Some of the stuff was pricey so that could be the case and I always feel bad. It also looked like there were not a ton of people browsing and less exhibitors this year. I love going to this every year and I would be sad if this went away.

Today I am sharing my card that I created for CASE this Sketch #140. I used the MFT "Trendy Triangle" set again that I used for this card.

Here is the sketch that inspired this card.

At first when I saw this, I  thought I would either use some washi tape or some watercolor to create the stripes. Then when I saw the scraps of my previous paper on my desk, I had an "Aha!" moment. So I die cut a piece of "washi" from the scrap using an MFT Blueprints die.

I then pulled out my triangle stamps and my MISTI and stamped various rectangles in green, aqua and black. Next I added a piece of sparkle tape in the same blue, attached the home made "washi" and adhered a heat embossed sentiment using foam adhesive.

To add even a little bit more interest, I adhered three sequins in different sizes. I thought I was done but the card looked unbalanced. I stamped the bottom too low. (Why I NEVER do one layer cards!!) I balanced it out by stamping one large triangle in green at the top.

Since this is using a graphic style again, I am entering this into Virginia's View Challenge #18: Geometric Patterns.

I am also entering this into the "Card Design Superstar" contest at My Favorite Things.

I thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful night.
