Geometric? Easier than you think.

Hello everyone. Well, I'm still just about hanging in here and just keeping up with making my DT cards. All the spare time I have at the moment goes into making a DT card and doing a post on here - but my head is still just above the water line. lol.

Well it's Tuesday so that means it is Creative Card Crew challenge day. I got to pick the challenge this week and I chose Geometric Patterns as the theme. Before you all run away screaming and tearing your hair out.....it is easier than you think. I looked up 'geometric' in the Oxford English Dictionary and the second definition is:

Geometric - 2. (of design) characterised by or decorated with regular lines and shapes.

So the way I see it, you could use almost any regular repeating patterned paper in from your stash.

I thought the geometric patterns would suit a male card and, because golfers wear checks and diamond patterns, I thought the challenge teamed nicely with the golfer image. The inside is nothing special - but at least you can see that I am still decorating the insides even if I don't always take a photo.

Papers - Basic Grey & Brazzill basics
Stamps - Clare Curds Signature Range (golfer's trousers, cap and shirt paper pieced with Basic Grey)
Distress inks - Tim Holtz
Brads - papermania

Please pop over to the challenge blog for some more geometric inspiration from the rest of the DT.
