Crafty Secrets Challenge

This week's Crafty Secrets challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers is being hosted by Joanne (Angelnorth) and she asked us to use SQUARES in some manner on our creations.  Here's what I came up with . . .

(click image to enlarge)
I am so pleased with the outcome of this card.  I don't do many square cards for one main reason ... it costs more in postage to send them and a lot of the ladies I sell my cards to are 'older' and don't want to pay that extra charge.  However, I do love them and enjoy the extra working surface!

The image on this creation is from the Crafty Secrets 'Little Blessings' Creative Scraps.  If you've not seen these creative scraps ... you really want to check them out.  They are very reasonably priced and they are two sided ... and just ADORABLE!!

Papers:  Cranberry, ivory, pear pizazz & pink cardstock
Accessories:  Martha Stewart doily lace border punch, Wright's lace (Joann's), Stampendous diamond dots,  flowers from Pizazz APlenty, Crafty Secrets Creative Scraps image
