Squares

I know I don't normally post on a Sunday but did so today in order to play along with a couple of challenges.    This was fun to do, but lining up all those little squares was not any where close to being easy...at least for me. 




I used three different embossing folders on the squares and popped up some and left overs flat on the black card stock.  The image is from Simply Soft (SU).

I'll enter this in the challenges at Mojo Monday (Sketch), Fab' n' Funky (No DP), Scrapalicious (Flower Power), and Simply Stampin (Perfect Pairs - I used two pair of each of the embossed squares.

Blogger and I are not jiving at all right now........none of my scheduled posts are being published!  Any suggestions?  Oh, and thanks for all the fun suggestions on what to do with that TP from my previous post.  I loved reading all of them. LOL!

Thanks for stopping by..........and hope everyone has a great day.

This is a truly magnificent card, Lynn, and I know how much work it took! Love the splash of soft pink on the black and white. Blogger isn't posting scheduled posts for anyone and all the techs can say is that they think they have it fixed. However, I've heard that each day now for the last 4 days and still scheduled posts aren't working. Sigh...

Wow, this is stunning! Loe all the textures in the background! You aren't the only one with Blogger issues. They've not been posing my automatic posts either. I have to check each time and go and do it manually.

Fab look with all the embossing and that splash of pink. Very pretty Lynn... and yep, another perfectly tied bow!

Tammy said...

Beautiful card Lynn, love its simplicity and the elegance of black and white with a hint of pink, perfect!
I've learned the hard way, after you set the date and time and click "done", you must then go to the top of the page and hit "publish" otherwise, nothing happens. Hope this helps.
