GRS DT challenge

It's GRS design team challenge day!  Our challenge is to use shapes...we could make a shaped card, or use shapes ON our project.

This challenge was a real stumper!  I thought about it for ages before an idea finally came to mind, and then I had trouble translating it from idea to reality.  I wanted to go for a simpler, more clean and graphic style than usual, and was hoping to achieve an illusion of a road extending from the foreground to the horizon, but after fussing with the hexagons for a while, I ended up with plan B!  Modern mo-ped meets uneven old-towne brick road!  Even though I'm missing my mojo (which unfortunately often happens for a while after I return from vacation), I still had a good time trying!

Visit the GRS blog to see what my teammates created for today's challenge!  And visit ihp to see the GRS sets that are available there!  LOTS of new product has been arriving from CHA, so you're likely to find lots of new pretties!
