Clearly Inspired Challenge #8

It's time to inspire you again over at Clearly Inspired Challenges on Lori's blog, Clearly iStamp! This week's challenge is to make a square card. It can be any size square, it just needs to be square. I made a 4 x 4 size card, and I love these little cards. They still fit in a standard size envelope, and still pack the same punch as a standard size card. Sometimes you just don't want to make a standard card ;) Here I chose to use the Stamp of the Month, that is yours FREE when you spend only $50 over at Clear Dollar Stamps. This set is called Sweet Circles.
CDS Stamps: Sweet Circles FEB SOM
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Green Galore, Cameo Coral
Paper: Intense Kiwi (Prism), Desert Coral Medium (Prism), Chocolate Chip (SU), Nook & Pantry Basic Grey dp, Neenah Solar White
Accessories: crocheted flower (by me), scallop edge punch, Square Scallop Nestabilties, button, brown thread, dimensionals, red/orange ricrac
