Always - Curtain Call #33

I try to spread the love when doing the Curtain Call challenges and use many different sets.  Today when I started my card I had about five possibilities.  I love Always...and was a little surprised it escaped the retired list, and decided to use it for this week's color combo.

I knew I wanted to use a circle and triangles (in a pennant or sunray fashion.)  I find it so much easier to create when I have at least a couple elements in mind.  It doesn't always work out or go the direction I intended, but it usually works out.

This card went in a different direction.  Initially the top half of the card was Whisper White.  I tried using Sticky Strip in a sun ray pattern.  Then sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds.  It sounded good, but didn't look so good.  So, I went with a simple DSP in Night of Navy.  It's better.  Am I totally satisfied?  No, but unless I gutted the whole card, I considered it done.
