Compose a Card Challenge #9

**This is my second post for the day.  Please scroll down to see a card I made using PTI's Green Thumb stamp set!  Thanks!!**

I LOVE this week's Compose a Card Challenge that Becky issued!  So, I decided to play along!  She said that we could use any colors that we wanted and so I chose some of my favorite patterned paper and started cutting. 


The card base is 5 x 5.  It's been a while since I've made a square card and it sure is fun to work with!  The square punches are suppose to be 1 1/4" and mine are just a tad larger than that (that was what size of punch I had and it is so much easier than cutting each square out). 


I also pulled out my sewing machine and made a spot for it in my crafting area.  I love to use it but since it's been in the storage closet, I seldom pull it out.  Well, now it is easily accessible and I can use it whenever I'd like.  I love how stitching looks on cards!  From this angle, you can also see the dimension.  I raised up the base, the ivory label and the umbrella all with 1/16" pop dots so each layer isn't raised very much to add a lot of bulk.


Hopefully I'll get a chance to play along with another challenge sometime soon.    It was a lot of fun!


Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a very blessed day!

Supplies:
Paper:  October Afternoon's Cherry Hill, PTI Aqua Mist, Melon Berry, Ivory
