Triangles from every Angle with Our Vintage Affair

Good evening to you all in the land of blog. 
An interesting Title don't you think, but what does it actually mean, well today sees the start of the next challenge at

with the fabulous theme of 

this might be a triangle card, or triangle box or anything with the shape of the triangle...

But before I move on I would like to thank the ladies at Clearly Inspired for selecting me as one of their top five winners

So back to Our Vintage Affair

We are sponsored this challenge by the fabulous "The Craft Barn"

So I decided to try something a colleague from another DT did, which I have to say I thought was stunning, so here is what I created.
I made a trio of triangle boxes.  I used some Pansy papers from the Dragon's Lair
and printed the templates found on the internet directly onto them, now I did make a slight mistake here and printed the template onto the coloured side, instead of the back of the papers, but the little dotted lines looked so good as faux stitching that I adapted my creation to suit.  I have added lots of flowers and a spray of varnish glitter.  Flowers are a mixture of Wild Orchid, Hobby House, Hobby Craft and a branch punch to finish. The ribbon is some pull through ribbon and just finished off the top point of the central box.

Do pop over and take a look at the other wonderful inspirational pieces by the rest of the Design Team.

I would like to say it is lovely to see some new faces joining us at Our Vintage Affair, and I hope lots more of you will hop over and follow along with us.
