Holiday Cheer--Crazy 4 Challenges #8

Happy Saturday! It's Crazy 4 Challenges time again and Vicki has a fun challenge for us today--go geometric! We're to use at least three geometric shapes on our projects today.

I'm using square, rectangle, and circle shapes on my card. The Mojo Monday sketch for this week was perfect for it so that's where my layout comes from. And these Verve stamps--Ornamental Christmas and Snowflake Splendor--worked perfectly, too. My patterned paper is from the Frost 6 x 6 pack from Memory Box and my card stock is Whisper White, Soft Suede, and Soft Sky. I embossed the lower part of the Soft Sky panel with snowflakes, and added some clear rhinestones to the snowflakes on the ornament and the corners for a little bling.

NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of the Crazy 4 Challenges team!

THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the sketch and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project, and not your blog. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C8.
