Hello JUGS281 and rs154

Sunday, February 22, 2015

I'm in the middle of doing housework (blech) and needed a little break so I thought I'd pop in here and show you a card I made using the colors at Just Us Girls and the sketch from retro sketches.

I just love a square card.  Too bad they cost extra to mail.  I usually try to keep mine 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 so I can still fit them in an A2 envelope and avoid the surcharge but my favorite size is about a half inch bigger.

It's been a while since I used this whimsical flower and it somehow seemed appropriate for this fun layout.  I scribbled on it with some colored pencils but I couldn't seem to get the color as dark as I wanted to I ended up going over some areas with my Regal Rose marker.  I love the scribbled look of these flowers.

Well that's it for me.  Back to vacuuming for a bit then I'm off to the grocery store.  I wish the weekends weren't so jam packed with chores!  Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Jofy 12 (Paper Artsy); Label Love (Altenew)
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Midnight Muse, Soft Sky, Whisper White (SU)
Ink:  Midnight Muse, Regal Rose (SU); Jet Black (Archival)
Accessories:  Pierced Square STAX, Fishtail Flags Layers STAX, Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX (My Favorite Things); Button Stacks II die (Papertrey Ink); enamel dots (My Mind's Eye)

Those flowers are super cool, love them! I also enjoy making square cards but am the same as you-keep them so they fit in an A2 envie.
