Cards Blog Challenge - Squares!

Over on the Cards Blog, the most recent challenge is to use Squares!! I love using squares!! For this card, I pulled out some of the solid shades of BasicGrey papers sitting on my desk (new years resolution - use what I have). The orange = Mandarin Slice from Marrakech, the yellow/green = Citron from Sultry , the blue = Kazoo Blue from Cupcake , and the pink = Fandango from Sultry. I cut each square to 1 and 1/2" square. Then, I stamped various images from the Asian Frames set (Hero Arts) with versamark and then heat embossed them with white. I am particularly
loving that daisy image on the orange square. Next, I adhered them to this piece of kraft colored file folder (good recycling!). I wrote the sentiment with my white gel pen (Signo) an then added the white doodling around the 4 colored squares and also the kraft layer. I placed all of this onto a white card base. Believe it or not, this challenge is actually done in enough time to enter it!! Wow, that's kinda new for me -- LOL!!! Thanks for dropping in to my blog today and checking out all of the cards I've posted today!! Donelda

Awesome CAS card, Donelda! The colors really pop off the kraft background and the white images really shine on the colors!! This card really looks like a kwernerdesign-inspired beauty!
