Challenge 171 - Pinspired Challenge

Hello, Heather here! I love Pinspired challenges. I pinned this image quite awhile ago. I just loved the geometric patterns, the color, and the makeup. I knew that once I figured out this challenge, that I would create something like the project I have for you below.

First however, we are very lucky to have Lagene Sands guest designing with us for this challenge. Be sure to stop by her blog and share some love!
"Hello I'm Lagene from southern Oregon, I am totally excited to be a Guest Designer for The Paper Girls Challenge Blog!  I dipped my toes into crafting in 2000 when my first grandchild was born. I started scrapbooking at that point. In 2006 I stumbled across Stamp TV with Gina K Designs and was HOOKED on card making from that day till now! I have discovered so many Stamp & Die companies and a wonderful world of Crafting Bloggers with great Inspiration and Challenges that get my creative juices flowing. 

I spent a couple of years on the Tutorial Time Design Team on Marks Finest Papers Blog. This company has since gone out of business, but you can see my projects on my old blog : INKYMEMA

I love trying new techniques and  especially love shaker cards.  My current blog is INKYLAGENEY
The inspiration photo totally reminds me of a "Tent Dress" I had in high school around 1969.  Here is a card I made mimicking the triangles and bright colors."

I knew how I would create a card that was similar to the Pinspired image above. I've had this die for quite awhile. For this card, I ended up using the die a total of six times, one for each color. I glued the cover onto paper, then, I placed in each piece in a random order.
The sentiment used black paper and white embossing to mimic the eye makeup on the image.

I had some Basic Grey patterned paper in my stash that matched the inspiration photo perfectly.

Karrie Cool pic! It inspired me to make a triangle collage with most of the colours.

My kiddos were in a picture last year by a wall that matched the colors and triangles in this image perfectly, so I knew I needed to use it. The colors resonated with me the most, so my layout contains matching bright colors too.

And now...congratulations to the winner of Challenge #168:
