Trends on Tuesday - Ready for some Maths?

Todays maths lesson is the pie chart, though I do think it looks a bit more like one of the trivial pursuit counters with the slices of cheese.  It's a really easy shape to make - you can draw around a plate and then divide the circle into  however many sections you desire.  I decorated mine using my die cut machine and added text around the edge of my chart, but you don't need to add anything.  I have also seen other pull out a piece of the pie slightly, which is another way to try too.  I have used Crate Papers Farmhouse collection and also a piece of their Random collection for this page too, and the page is based on a sketch by Valerie Mangan for the Studio Challenge site.

So having used this shape on a page I decided to see if it would work on a card too.

I punched a one inch circle out of 3 October Afternoon Cake Walk papers and then just cut them into 1/6ths, I like adding them at either side of my central image as they almost look like a firework....a little burst of colour in the corners added to with the cosmic shimmer mist.  So instead of a normal circle, how about a pie chart ?
