Be There or Be Square!

Have you guys been on Caardvarks site lately? They are having a big 10 day contest going on right now with lots of fun prizes!!! Today's challenge was to use four squares as the focus of your card. I'm hoping that this counts because I had to 'play' with it a bit. I started out with 4 squares, but rounded 3 of the corners. I've seen this done before and I loved the way it looked, so I had to try it myself.

This is yet another coffee themed card of mine, but I really love the images. The stamp set is from My Favorite Things called Hot Stuff. This is my only set by MFT, but hopefully in a day or two my new set will be coming - Hit the Beach! So... I promise to have a little more variety soon. :) I stamped directly onto the orange paper using dark brown ink, and colored in with Prismacolor Pencils. I used a Sakura Stardust pen to glitter up all of the blue areas, but you can't see it from the picture. The orange paper is actually the reverse side of the plaid paper I used (Crate Paper Cowboy collection). It goes really well with SU's bashful blue and chocolate chip CS. I added the sentiment (from the same stamp set) and paper pierced the corners with SU's Crafter's Tool Kit. I just LOVE this kit! I've used it almost daily for the past year.

I'm planning on doing my first blog candy soon, so keep your eyes peeled for future postings!


  1. I totally love this card! Love the layout!

  2. This card is great! I'm hoping too that your card "counts" for four squares. This is a clever creative twist! Thanks for sharing. LorieR
