Triangles and designer paper from Stampin' Up

I do like to play with designer paper - especially when it's all trendy and new - like the Moonlight paper stack from Stampin' Up.  Here's a simple card I made with one of the papers when I had a sudden excitement about triangles:

The size of this stack is perfect for card-making and it contains loads of fabulous double-sided designs inside, each with a different feel.  I love this geometric paper with its retro 80s vibe.

Some of the little triangles already appear in the paper design but I gave it a further sprinkling, adding in different sizes. I snipped these with my sharp paper snips, using off-cuts of the paper as templates.

I'm linking this card to the Geometical challenge at Addicted to CAS (thanks for the reminder Kylie!)

I remember once sitting through a very stressful school concert when my youngest son was at his first school. He had previously won many favourable reviews (!) with his scintillating performance as one of the three Kings in the Christmas play (never had a king smiled so winningly!) and was prepared to stretch himself in this concert by playing the triangle. He had the important role of striking the triangle at a key moment and I don't think I've ever seen anyone concentrate so hard for fear of letting the team down. The big moment loomed and sweat broke out on my brow... the moment arrived and there was a pause that seemed to last a hundred years before the note rang out triumphantly and we all breathed and smiled!

 See you tomorrow.
