It's Hip to be Square

Well today's challenge at notimetostamp is to be square...no don't be square, have a square shaped card and I mean all the way square. No ovals, no circles...just squares. Well I made my square card which is a 6"x6" out of a brocaded type paper that cost $3 a sheet and was just sitting there for I don't know how long, so I decided ...now is the hour. No name on it because I think I bought it over a year or so ago at a stamp store going out of business sale so I can't even check to get any info but do you need to know??? Some things are better off not knowing and this is going to be one of those things ...so deal with it. Lovely cardstock quality. All I did was layer a couple of squares using the brocade then gold etc. On my final gold square I embossed the word Rejoice from a Flourishes Christmas set, in gold and then added some blingers and a bow tied with the handy Bow Easy. Very simple card because as you know I am on vacation and don't have time to fool around. I'm here for fun and my time is running out so I have to get all my square work done in the form of square dancing not stamping. When next we speak I will be back in Michigan. So...have a happy weekend and a big Howdy from Montana.
