Sketch Challenge --Hip to be Square

I love making Square cards. So when I saw this Sketch Challenge , I was excited to play. The funny thing is I made this card in less then half hour and I made it BEFORE heading to bed. So I must be a little sleepy and loopy..anyhow the next morning, when I saw the square card again, I made few minor changes and it's good to go! That's the best thing about making a square card--it's not fussy! If you haven't made one before, then it time to try it out.
HUGS
  The stamps (Real Flowers) is from Hero Arts and the sentiment and heart are SRM Stickers. I also added two lines of faux stitching (my specialty!) for some interest. As for the little red shiny heart, I colored the heart with red gel pen and covered it with the SRM  heart stickers.  Do not be surprised if I make another one for the challenge--too much fun! Hope you get to try this sketch out.
