Sketch Frenzy Friday Sketch Challenge: Geometrical Craziness

We're almost at the end of the work week, awesome.  I have to say, this really is the winter that won't give up, warm weather last weekend followed by snow the next day, it's crazy but I know spring is just around the corner and I can't wait.  Today I have a unique card for this weeks Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch challenge.  I have to admit I was really intimidated when I saw this sketch since it's outside by comfort zone.  The cardbase is Pool Party cardstock and I added a layer of Whisper White Cardstock that I attached all my elements to.  I wanted to change things up and instead of using the triangle shape I used the Hexagon Punch and lots of different patterns from the Quatrafancy Speciality Designer Series Paper.  For some of the hexagons I cut them in half to create the top and bottom strips. 
I added a piece of Daffodil Delight 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon across the center of the cardstock with a simple bow.  For the greeting, I used another new stamp set, Geometrical, and colored in the stamp with Stampin' Write Markers.  The font on this stamp set is really fun and the solid lettering is really popular right now. I cut the greeting out with the Big Shot and Ovals Collection Framelits.  I used the same framelits to cut the mat with Island Indigo cardstock and embossed it with the Lattice Embossing FolderDimensionals are the perfect adhesive to attach the greeting to the card since it can help the greeting bridge over the ribbon.
It was fun to step out and try something new, it really helps you stretch your creativity.  What are you working on this weekend?  Perhaps you can use this sketch as inspiration, play along with us, we would love to see your creations.
Have a great weekend!
