APTS challenge blog PICK A SHAPE theme for March 2021

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart stuttered with the chart of all the shape options Chana has for the March 2021 A Place To Start challenge blog!!! So many choices yet I decided to stick with squares and rectangles. I was hoping to go on the angle for diamonds but the layout worked better to stick to a horizontal linear sketch. 

For a nephew's recent birthday:

"The World Is A Better Place Cause of You" card=

This is the chart that Chana has shared on the APTS March 2021 blog post. Pick a shape to feature. Chana states that it can be the shape of the card or part of another project or the shape can be the embellishment or sentiment tag/focal. Lots of options.

My card has a rectangle base and background paper as well as cork ribbon. Cut-a-part cards are not quite square. But the little letter tiles are squares. (Darice for the golden yellow flat card base w/ matching envelope; Webster Pages for the cut-a-part cards and letter tiles; checked patterned paper has been in stash for a very long time; cork ribbon and alpha stickers for "You" were bought at Dollar Tree)

Two more cropped scans of the card:
