Outlines - Squares

Good Monday morning! Hope you had a nice weekend! I made 5 cards, so it was a good weekend for me!

Who's ready for Spring??  I am, as you can tell from this card!  This week's Outlines' design team challenge is squares. For my card, I used the Flower Square Large (E-522) for my focal image. I also used the Script Thank You (B-1054) image, cut using a square Nestabilites die, and the Flower Strip (E-553) image for the border on the right edge.
Here is a closeup of the main image to show the layers.  I stamped the image four times and used one for the base layer, then I cut out the inner square with the flower image and inner border for the second layer.  The third layer is just the center square with the flowers and the fourth layer is the flowers and leaves.  All the layers are popped up on foam tape.
I added some Swarovski Crystals and Gold Viva Decor Pearl Paint Pen to the outer border of the image and I added Swarovski Crystals to the centers of the flowers and painted all the leaves with Smooch Top Coat.   If you click on this final image to see a larger version, you can see all the shine!  All of the flowers were colored using Copic markers.  The background patterned paper is from Making Memories Flower Patch collection.  My card measures 5.5" square.

Please be sure to check out the 'square' cards the rest of the design team made:

I agree with SAndy, such a girly card, with all the florals. GIrly and Gorgeous! I think we are all getting addicted to those pearl pens! AS always you pull the most perfectly matched paper to coordinate with your images!
