Life is Amazing

Happy Tuesday!
Today starts a new challenge week at Tuesday Throwdown!  This weeks challenge is "Hip to be Square" so we want to see lots and lots of squares on your cards!  Not too difficult, right?
Here is my card:
Our fabulous sponsor this week is The Stamping Boutique (who is currently having a sale!!  Woot!)  So many wonderful images from them :)
I have used Tulip Fairy.  It's an image I won quite awhile ago and I thought it would work perfect for this challenge.
She's colored in with my colored pencils and I added a little glitter to her wings and some of the details around the image.
I cut some patterned paper into squares and alternated them behind the image.  Then I punched out a heart border on the top and bottom of those squares.
The sentiment is from Ginger's House.  The final touch was making some square buttons to embellish the card with.

This card is entered in the following challenges:
    Sketch Saturday #221
    The Crazy Challenge #127-Anything Goes
    Frosted Designs-Twine or Ribbon
    The Corrosive Challenge #156-Cute as a Button

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to swing over to Tuesday Throwdown, check out the Design Teams amazing work and join in our challenge!!!


  1. This is so incredible, Emily! Love that sentiment. Wonderfully sweet image. Wherever did you find those square buttons? They're perfect for the challenge!

  2. Thanks NC! The buttons I made myself. Just cut some square, punched the holes out with my eyelet tool and smothered them in glossy accents :) I love making my own buttons since I don't actually have any of the real thing! Lol... :)
