OLS9 - Hip to be Square


I'm the hostess for September's One-Layer Simplicity Challenge and it's a fun one (if I do say so myself!)

It's called Hip to be Square and all you have to do is make a one-layer card that uses at least one square in some way.

I love to make square cards, so that's one. I stamped a Papertrey square stamp 4 times (five), making another square (six in total). To offset all those straight lines, I chose a curvy 'handwritten'  Ali Edwards sentiment that was big and bold. I centred it over the colourful square and stamped it in black, to ensure that the sentiment takes centre stage over the pattern.

This challenge will run until midnight on September 24. Hope to see you there!
