Uniko Challenge #26 - Reminder

Hi friends it's time for a gentle little 'nudge' as there's
still one more week to play along in our challenge over at

Uniko where the theme is Geometric 
using circles or squares if you'd like to try the optional twist

Here's my card and as we've zapped the fall cards and Halloween is in full swing 
I've gone for another major holiday we've still to celebrate this year
 ... yep you guessed!

Using masking paper and a Sizzix Framelit triangle die I've used the
negative die-cut to mask my card panel before inking with distress inks
in Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Chipped Sapphire. With the mask
still in place I've stamped rows of one of the border stamps from 
Background Builders Circles in Versamark ink before embossing with WOW
Metallic silver sparkle. The same treatment for the sentiment which is from the
Simply Said - Christmas set and the little trunk, also 'triangular' is from the tip
of an arrow from the Accent Essentials - Arrows set.

I hope you feel inspired to play along and as well as my fellow teamies
cards over on the Uniko blog HERE we've got two fabulous guest designers
helping us out this month. I'm simply speechless at being in a line-up with them!
I do hope you'll pop along to check out their amazing talent and leave some
friendly feedback ... we all love a comment don't we!

I'd like to pop this one in at Freshly Made Sketches as I've 
literally gone straight with this week's sketch!

Oh! Before I forget details of the prizes up for grabs if you are one of our lucky 
winners in this challenge are explained over at Uniko HERE

Thanks for calling in today and I'll be back tomorrow with
