This card came together after I saw the challenge over at CASology - CAS#175. The cue word this week is PIE and my immediate thought was apple pie or mince pies! However, I was going through my stamps and found this set from Sweet Stamp Shop which has barely seen ink (it's now discontinued). I went off at a complete tangent. I stamped the graph chart and pie chart on scrap card, coloured them and cut them out. I cut a panel of wood - REAL WOOD - for the background using the largest of the dies and adhered it to the card base. I cut another panel of white card, stamped the sentiment and adhered the images. The graph is flat on the card, but I used gel glue for the little heart pie chart. On the inside I cut a panel of summer starfruit for the mat layer and on the white panel I added another pie chart, some people and finished the sentiment.
I've used the colours from Colour Q Challenge - cQc#319. I'm really pleased how this one turned out!!
I've got a very busy day planned. I need to sort out the Christmas card address list and get all my cards written. I have to remember that I can't leave it to the last minute, as I often did when I lived in the UK. If I want my family and friends in the UK to get their cards on time, I have to be prepared!! See you soon.
