Geometric Thanks


Today I have a card made with Snippets for the Simon Says Wednesday challenge - to make a "thanks/Thanksgiving card." I used a base of soft stone cardstock, with a left over piece of dsp, and added a geometric design with red and black squares. I added a punched flower and a negative cut out from a hexagon border. The sentiment is from SU!

I'm also taking this to the Snippets Playground #152 as soon as the gates open. I missed the current event by just 35 minutes! I really need to get out of bed earlier on weekends ;)

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great weekend!

This is a very striking card Carol! I love the black and red squares and the red flower on the black square. Just that little piece of DP works so well. A great little card that uses up some snippets, can't get any better than that! Hugs, Brenda
