WCMD 2012 Challenge 5: Trend Watch

I squeezed in some time to do another of Ellen Hutson's World Card Making Day challenges.  This one is WCMD 2012 Challenge 5:  Trend Watch Challenge by Julia Stainton.

I've been crazy about some of the latest shape trends...the chevron, zigzags, and more recently hexagons.  One shape I've always been fond of is harlequin.  As I flip through the volumes of patterned paper I have, harlequin is a repeat offender in every color and size.  And, I've noticed  very recently, some newer patterned paper (and stamps) in this design.  I think it is coming back in vogue!  So my trend of choice for this challenge is the diamond/harlequin shape.


I used  the pretty patterned diamonds trimmed from a piece of Pink Paislee designer paper.  A few of the diamonds were popped up with dimensionals for interest.  Sentiment is by Hampton Art and cardstock is SU! kraft.

I've really enjoyed making these challenge cards (see previous post also).  Thanks Ellen and Company!

Thanks for peeking!
