Freshly Made Sketches 1 Yr Anniversary - Retro Squares

Happy Monday Folks,
Today's post is for the Freshly Made Sketches 1 Year Anniversary Celebration.  We are to choose a sketch from the past and use it for this week. I have decided to go with Week 20. I used a new die from My Favourite Things called Retro Squares for my card, love the dimensional effect it has and then had to keep with the square theme until I made the flower. The flower petals have all been snipped further into the centre, embossed, sponged and then assembled after that I pinched the tips of the petals to give the flower some shape.

Stamps: S/U's Afterthoughts
Cards and Papers: Perfect Plum, Whisper White, Sahara Sand, DSP Sweet Slumber Speciality (R)
Ink: Stazon Black, Perfect Plum
Finishing Touches: Rhinestone Brads, Baker's Plum Lustre Twine
Cool Tools: Big Shot, MFT Retro Square Die, Sizzix Square Lattice E/Folder, Sizzix Fun Flowers Bigz Die, Sizzix Sizzlits Little Leaves Die, Sponge, Sizzix Birds and Blooms Dies, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals, 2 Way Glue Pen, Tombow Multi Purpose Glue
Thanks for dropping in today.
