"Nellie" new hostess with the mostest at the Stampotique dt challenge blog says...

I often like to incorporate geometric shapes in my cards, be it squares, circles, rectangles etc. So this week I challenge you to use a geometric shape  in your card or project. But not just  any shape you like. I has to be a TRIANGLE. Use just one or as many as you like.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with… So have fun stamping!
 Groetjes,
Nellie van Leeuwen

I pulled "the homestead" image from Stampotique 
and colored and cut it out.  I placed it on a tag covered in black cs and some dp scraps.  (Forgot the dp..I made this before the hand surgery - :(  
These are some Prima flowers, a very old metal brad and some string (mid flower).  I did a little sewing and put the month of January on it. I also wanted to say I went to the outlet type store for "Crate and Barrel" when I was out of town and they had this awesome glass tape (letters on bottom of tag) in their reduced bin.  Cool stuff!   So, my triangle is my little tiny metal "hanger"...he he he!  Hope you go for this challenge too!  Got any hangers lying around?
