Geometric Florals

Hi there. It has been a bit quiet here on my blog, but I do have a new card for you today and maybe even more later.

Have you seen the fabulous feature over at Winnie & Walter - The Gossip Column written by Taheerah? She is so clever and creative and I love the research and spin she puts on the trends we see in the Papercraft world.  This month it's all about Geometric shapes and patterns. Here is my take ...

If you visit my blog regularly, you may have heard me admit I have trouble with Geometric cards, because I never seem to get things straight. So my way of including geometric elements is to go artsy! I used one of the free digi elements from W&W and made a stencil with my Silhouette and spritzed it with Color Shine.  The flowers and sentiment are from The Big, The Bold and The Extra. I do love florals contrasted with graphic lines! 

The theme at City Crafter is Focus on Flowers, so I'm playing there too!
ETA: I'm also entering the Inkspirational Challenge, where they have a fun theme - 
Recipe - Use at least 3 of these 4 elements: Distressing, Flowers, Embossing, Pearls.
I have used Distress Markers, Flowers and embossing.
