"Quote" No worries, there’s no mathematics involved in this week’s challenge It’s only about using geometric forms for your ATC, such as triangles, circles or rectangles. You can, for instance, make a diamond background, or triangular hats, or integrate a round tag.

This is my Geometry ATC.

Kathy set the Daring Cardmakers challenge this week .
Hide & Seek The challenge is to make a card which has a hidden component of some sort.The hidden part could be a tag, a concealed photo, message or something along those lines, maybe a pull-out or pop-up.

I have made a criss- cross card for the challenge and although the Happy Birthday wish is visible your personal message will be hidden under the flaps.
