Virginia's View Challenge #18

Hello friends! It's the new month! 
September means the start of Fall and getting back to school....
This is the perfect time to get back to the BASICS! 
We are going to explore Geometric Patterns. 

Please make anything geometric and let it be the STAR of your design. You can use stamps, dies, pattern paper...stencils to create anything geometric/ patterns. We are also talking about shapes...you can use circles, triangles, rectangles, hexagon....any shape that you heart desires to be part of your design. Sky is the limit.

 To start off this design, 
hang in there

My 2nd card is to utilize border stamp to create geometric shapes (squares in this case).
UR G8!

This monthly card-making challenge blog will run till the 18th (11:55pm Eastern Time) and there will be a SPOTLIGHT feature of Top 10 Favorites on the 25th. Any style and all levels are most welcome! You can read more about the challenge guidelines at the bottom of the page. Among the Top 10 Fav, there will be a random draw for a lucky (and talented) winner who will then receive the top prize. In order to qualify for the top prize, your project has to be NEW (not linked back to a previously made project). You are welcome to combine other challenges, but please limit your total number of challenges to no more than 4.
 
Our Sponsor: Simon Says Stamp


Our Top Winner (randomly selected from Top 10 Favorites) will receive a $25 voucher!
  AWESOME, eh?!

I can't wait to see what you come up with! As usual, we will have very talented guest designers who will continue to inspire you right here in this blog in the next few days.
The Spotlight Feature will be coming up in a few days.. The truth is, my family and I just got back from a two-week trip to Europe ( first London and then a cruise to Norway--yes, WAY!!). If things were a little slow, you'll know why! Our guest designers have made their decisions for their top 10 favorites and HM. I will catch up as soon as I am able to.
Thank you for your patience and support.
