*Three Squares Best Wishes*

Good morning everyone.... up and ready to face my day nice and early as I wanted a little time to create before running off to the dentist.  This afternoon I have my ladies bowling league and then late this afternoon I get to pick up Shannon's daughter Hailey (see the diebar to the right, under CalGals, to find Shannon's blog and some photos of her darling girl) from the day home and bring her here for about an hour.  I'm looking forward to spending a little time with her!

I created this card last night in only a few minutes... it is for two challenges... the current ColourQ and Less is More challenges....
Items Used:
*Cardstock: PTI White; Stampin' Up! Pear Pizazz, Tangerine Tango, Bordering Blue, Early Espresso
*Images: PTI Mega Mixed Messages
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Early Espresso
*Tools: Big Shot; Quickutz Flowers embossing folder

*Challenges:  ColourQ74; Less Is More #4


As soon as I saw the challenge of "three squares" over at Less Is More I knew what I wanted to do... and then I found the colour combination and thought "why not?"!  I like how clean this card came out....

Enjoy your day!!

Hi Nancy,
I'm really pleased yo see that you have made your card in plenty of time for the deadline of our challenge this time. That's good news.
This card worked out well... I think that if I had chosen a rectangular card like this, I may just have offset the squares slightly, rather than putting them centrally. Either way it's great!
SO glad you made and see you next time!
