Let Us See Your Layers

Are you sitting down or did you fall down when you actually saw I had done two posts in less than a week? I have been terribly bad about participating in any challenges or posting on my blog. I wish I could tell you I'm going to be better in the coming weeks, but I can't. How I ever found time to work is beyond me.

I have finally made a card to enter in the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge blog for this week. The theme was lots of layers, and I think I've complied with that request.

I saw a card on Pinterest using trapezoid layers. I started in that direction designing in my Silhouette software, but then I wanted a sentiment that had something to do with angles. When I found this sentiment, I changed my layers from trapezoids to triangles(sorry girls it's the mathematician in me). I even created the triangle edged border with my Silhouette software.

The papers are from Lily Bimble's digital kit called Fiesta. I used photoshop to match the colors in the paper in order to create some solid colored cardstock. I found the sentiment by Googling angle quotes. I guess they figured I couldn't spell, because I got a lot more results for angel quotes than angle ones.

This image from the Sassy Cheryls Stamp Store is called Just so Be Yourself.

There's still time to join the challenge, so come on get busy.
