WPlus9: Step It Up with a Whole Lotta Happy

WPlus9 is having a weekly challenge throughout February in celebration of their 4th birthday!  The first week's was to stay in your comfort zone.  This week is to step it up by adding dimension.  I've been waiting all week for my new order from them - the post office said Tuesday, it showed up late today (Thursday), but there's still 12 hours until the challenge closes - so here's my dimension.

Whole Lotta Happy

Here's a better look at the dimension...

I challenged myself in other ways on this card too. I don't have geometric shape stamps - but I really liked the look of this new set Just Geometrics: Triangles so I am stretching a little.  (Check the set out on Dawn's card here.)  I also don't do gold - but it certainly is showing up everywhere.  (Check out Dawn's card here.)  By the point that I am writing this post, I have realized that the reason that I don't do gold is that it's impossible to photograph.  So the card was frustrating and I got careless near the end with crooked triangles and a sentiment...but given the challenge is offering up $100 WPlus gift card to a random winner - I'm entering it anyway!!  (And I'll do better on next week's challenge!)

  • Stamps: WPlus9 Whole Lotta Happy, Just Geometrics: Triangle
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Coastal Cabana, misc gold
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana
  • Accessories: WPlus9 Whole Lotta Love dies, Hemptique 10-lb white twine

Your sentiment is FAB! Love the 'Crooked Golden Happy' and your 'crooked or not' triangles!!
Well done, stepping out of your comfortzone, I don't think I could come up with such a great card as you did!!
And I think most crafters know how difficult it is to photograph 'gold' on cards, ha, ha, frustrating indeed!
But hey, just 'BE HAPPY' and remember to smile today. Have a wonderful Valentine's day today!!!
Bye,

Marjolein :-)
