Harlequin Wishes

Happy Wednesday! The card today was made for the Sweet Dreamers Blog Group Challenge #3 All About the Grid. When this challenge was posted, I immediately thought of this background paper! I love the Harlequin pattern! The challenge for me was how to amplify the pattern. I used black card stock embossed with the Cuttlebug for the large diamonds. The smaller diamonds are cut from a textured metallic paper stack. All are raised on dimensionals. The sentiment is stamped on white card stock. I am happy with this result and think it will make a good card for a masculine birthday. Hope you like it too! Be sure to check out the posts from the other Sweet Dreamers!! This is an awesome group of very talented crafters! The list is on the right sidebar. Please be sure to visit often and Blessings To You!!

  9. It's neat the way you've added the sentiment inside a diamond. That ties all the elements together. Nice job.
