Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #383


Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Make for the Border Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...

It's Hip To Be Square

 We are using Simon Says Stamp products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-) 

 I decided to stamped a circle within a square card. This is what I came up with. I often look at stamps and try to think of ways to use them differently.

Handwritten Florals 

To make sure that I keep the images within the square, I cut a piece of card stock measures 4"x4". Then I started with the largest leafy vine.  With the help of MISTI, I positioned the stamp in place and could stamp perfectly with each turn of the paper. 
Happy birthday (2)

 I filled up with the space with the smaller floral and leaf images. The sentiment was stamped in Antique Gold ( love it! ). I added the gold strings on top for the finishing touches.

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
