Moxy Fab - Tuesday's Trigger - Cherished Squares

I recently stumbled onto the Moxy Fab blog and their Tuesday Trigger Challenge. The challenge this week is called 'Cherished Squares' and the inspiration photo is just above. I followed the Moxy Fab column in the PaperCrafts magazine for many years but had never checked out the blog. It is a great column that keeps you abreast of changes and new trends in the world of card making. I'm sure I'll be checking the blog often now that I found it!

For my card, I decided to begin with a Kraft card base. I decided to do inchies, though mine are 1.5 inches a piece. I chose colors in the inspiration piece, and some of my stamps, all by Inkadinkado, are circular like the centers of the afghan square. I think the lacy black border on the side replicates the crocheting too. My art style, like the rest of how I interpret life, is pretty literal, though I've been trying harder to break out of my box a bit more. Looking forward to meeting some new friends through this challenge. Have a great day everyone. Yvonne
