It's Hip to be Square


Well today's Timeless Tuesday is to do a square card and so I did. When I photoed this card I must have been drinking as it looks a bit lop-sided;however, it is a 5x5 square card. I think it was Huey Lewis of Huey Lewis and the News that sang that song...it's hip to be square. Like his philosophy because I love to be square every now and then but on to the card.
Used olive card stock and put my beautiful very pale Basic Gray's Sultry mat and then used Flourishes tulip stamp and also the thank you from the Gratitude set. Not really sure if I have the title correct but I think I'm close.Added a bit of ribbon from Mike's along with a little bling I found while on a recent visit to his place. He is so nice to deal with and very helpful too. So it's a simple card with a bit of water colored pencil usuage and boom, you are fini.

I think this is beautiful! That tulip is one of my favorite images of all time - add a classy ribbon and you, my dear, have a winner!!!

Pretty card! Love that olive ribbon and with a pink tulip it's perfect! Hope you got your mulch spread. I have been ignoring my weeds and hoping they just go away. I figure I'm good because I can see my pink tulips over them, right? Gotta go "brusha, brusha". Enjoy the heat wave Julie sent this way!
