A new adventure!

This is my first card for the Spring CAS design team on SCS. The challenge is to make square cards...not really a challenge for me, 'cause that's mostly what I like to make. I like everything even and symmetrical, so I love square cards!

I also cleaned up my craft room/office this weekend. I had quite a bit of stuff that was not on a shelf or in a container. I also had piles of really old magazines that were taking up some prime real estate on the bookshelf. My Cricut has now moved in there, leaving more room for my sewing machine. Hopefully I will use it a bit more now that it is more accessible!

Anyways, onto the my cleaning, I came across all kinds of embellishments that I have been saving for years. I had a few of these ginormous buttons that I got on sale a few years ago. I don't even know who made them...they were out of their package. I found some BG paper to match and used a circle nestie to cut a circle to go on the button. I had to use some dp to cover up the ribbon crisscrossing on the back of the button. I threaded the SU grosgrain through the holes, glued the monster on, added a sentiment and a few holes with my piercer. After the fact, I rounded the corners 'cause that looked better with the round button. Here it is!

So now it's your turn...go make a square card! Here is a link to the challenge! Have a great day!!
