Creative Embellishments March challenge

I recently discovered that Creative Embellishments have a monthly challenge, so I thought I would play along this month.

The inspiration image looks like this

And here is my layout-

I took my inspiration from the triangular roof tops in the picture. I also picked out some polka dot patterns and colours from the inspiration picture. When the challenge was to show why I am lucky, I immediately had to scrap a photo of being with my kids.

My background is layers of gesso, gelatos, then Heidi Swapp colour shine and modelling paste through stencils. I have used a piece of Teresa Collins paper as my base. 

I used a pack of Creative Embellishments triangles chipboard, which I inked in black for impact. I deliberately misaligned my patterned paper under the chipboard triangles for a more playful feel. 

 My title ' grateful' is a piece from the Pink Paislee 'Cedar Lane' collection. I think it definitely fits in to the 'lucky' theme of the challenge.

 I finished of with a Heidi Swapp stamp, and some Doodlebug sprinkles.
