CAS-ual Fridays # 65

Hello, dear friends! It's time to play CAS-ual-Fridays! The challenge is to create a perfectly square card. It can be 4"x4", 4 1/4"x 4 1/4", 5"x5".....etc. As long as it a square card, it qualifies! I don't know about you, but I LOVE making square cards! Something tells me that it's hip to be a square! It is easier to balance the design, don't ya think?

Our sponsor: Stampoutique


We DT were generously provided the wonderful Stampoutique stamps. Their stamp design ranges are amazing. Check them out and you'll see what I mean. I picked the stamps with the modern vibe! This Hexagon and this A Friend's Touch phrase were my choices.  Here is the result:
Touch your heart
I took a monochromatic approach with the stamps. The alcohol-inked strip of paper at the bottom was a scrap piece from other project. I tend to save every scraps that I have...I have quite a few bins of scraps! OK...hm.... that's another post (LOL)!

Please link up your CAS project to CAS-ual Fridays by noon, Thursday, Aug. 16 Eastern Time. Hope you get to create a square card! Happy weekend!

The little touch of rhinestones is the best! I only recently learned you can use the alcohol markers to customize your clear gems. Money saver! And I love how you use your scraps. I hate cleaning my desk because that's how so many cards start. Way to recycle!
