Love. Squared.

The challenge over at the Create Blog is to use square punches.  Here's my card for the challenge:

Revisiting this design here, I punched out a square on a cardstock panel.  Then  stamped French script (SU) with VersaMark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I adhered it with foam adhesive.  The sticker is from SRM, heart is from $ store, ribbon is from Offray.  I'm entering this in Less is More challenge to 'Cut it Out' (take 2!) and Moxie Fab World Cool Tools challenge-Punches.

*edited to add*  
My card was showCASed on the Less is More blog! ~ Thank you Mandi and Chrissie~

Next is a little treat bag I made.  The 'Be Mine' flag is a free printable from here.  Love this site, and the actual Creative Bag store is to die for!!  I can't be trusted in there with a credit card...too many gorgeous boxes/bags/ribbons make it into my cart!

The treat bag is from the store.  Sticker is from SRM, brad is from The Paper Store.  I'm entering this into Really Reasonable Ribbon's Valentine's Day challenge.

See you soon,

Oh Ivanka, this is simply stunning. The little red heart and touch of gingham really makes this card 'pop'. I love it.
