Unstampabelles Challenge for March - Geometric Shapes- Using 3 or more Shapes

Well it's MARCH already!! I can't believe how fast time seems to pass.
Unstampabelles Challenge is as always to create something without the use of either STAMPS or DIGITAL images. This is easier than you might think, have a look at the Design Teams Inspirations for help if your Mojo needs a nudge.

This month we are Sponsored by       annabelle Stamps

My Design Team thought provoker is a standard sized card (A5 scored and folded in half) my base is in Stampin Up's Basic Black.

My top matting is two colours, Bermuda Bay, and Very Vanilla embossed with SU's Lattice Embossing folder.
To cover the join I used a piece of 1.5cm wide black ribbon with white edges and dots.

The toppers are punched shapes from SU Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Raspberry Ripple & Bermuda Bay. 
The 4 & the U on the pennents are rub on's. I finished with a little strip of bling down the centre of the butterfly.

So for my card  I have used the following shapes:
  • 3 rectangles
  • 2 squares
  • 2 circles
  • 4 pennants
  • 1 heart
  • 1 butterfly
The shapes in RED meet the Geometric requirement. The others are because.

I hope this gives you some inspiration in creating your own Geometrically inclined piece, be it card, box, scrapping layout, whatever you can come up with. other then meeting the standard rules of NO stamps and NO digi's as well as having at least 3 different geometric shapes, let your creativity run free.
I look forward to seeing your beautiful entries over at unstampabelles.

Happy Crafting
