Square can be cool!

I made this for an old SCS challenge (SC190). Now the purpose of a challenge is to, well, challenge us to create outside of our comfort zone. Square cards are outside of my comfort zone. I don’t know why, but they are. So I had to really work on this one. I also have to work to incorporate DP into some of my cards, but I got out this retired SU DP and really love the colors so I knew I had to use it. I added So Saffron and Certainly Celery

I stamped my cute little hedgies on watercolor paper and colored with markers and brush. I used my photo corner punch and then mixed it up a touch the DP on one corner. I wanted to leave it simple because I am finding simple cards can be very pretty and save time.
For now, I’ll leave the sentiment area blank and add this card to my emergency stash.


Happy Stampin'!
