Geometric shapes

The lovely Sharon has set the challenge this week at Creative Card Crew to create a card using geometric patterns. I thought it would be really easy but I have soooo many papers to choose from I wasn't sure what to do. Eventually decided on this:

Pink Petticoat patterned paper and image, Nestabilities, Copics, Fiskars punch
Bit of an accident how this one turned out. My printer ran low on blue ink half way through printing and the patterned paper came out in these colours which I decided I preferred! How lucky is that? It's from the new 'Big Fella' range at Pink Petticoat. Anyway, paper and colours decided upon, I got a few pads of plain papers out from DCWV and selected the best matches and finally chose an image. I'd already got this flower one printed off, again from Pink Petticoat so matched up the colours and pieced the lot together. I think the shapes in the image match the shapes in the paper too.
I'd never normally choose these colours so chuffed it turned out this way.
Didn't quite make it through Sex and the City yesterday, Zac woke up with teething pain and only seemed pacified by CBEEBIES, not quite what I had in mind but there you go! Maybe try again later.
