It's Hip to be Square!


The challenge at Cards In Envy is to make square cards, or cards with squares on them. I used my Gina Marie stitched square dies to create a square thank-you card. I just layered some brown, orange, red, and honey cardstocks, placing a MB vivienne butterfly on top. Of course I cut the butterfly in several colors, swapping the inserts for assorted colors. For the final touch I added some very tiny gemstones to the body and antennae. The inside has a nice thank-you sentiment.
I'm also sharing this over at the Snippets Playground #243 which is to always use snippets. This butterfly has plenty of those!

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Monday!

Simply and beautiful!!! Your design so regular looks wonderfully with the mosaic butterfly and the colours choosen!! This is a genial idea, and as always you has been so creative and accurate! And how many patience you have had to put all the tiny pieces at their own place! Great work!!
