It's hip to be square

Ok, I know it's lame for a title, but what the heck! I love how this card turned out and really quick easy. Before I begin I just want to say that my previous post was a little bit of a vent. It really helped curb my anger at the inlaws. My FIL phoned today to discuss some work stuff with the DH and only then realized and shortly after the MIL phoned as well. Really no excuse to not phone your grandchildren on their birthday, but this too shall pass. I am having an easier time venting things out and then letting them pass, which isn't always easy for me. Its an ongoing battle but we all still have to vent sometimes, right?

So! This lovely card is 4.75 square and I started by embossing it with the d'vine swirls folder from cuttlebug. Then I trimmed up the edge, compliments to Martha Stewart's great border punch! I added the border to the pattern paper also. I'm not sure why but I just After attaching the ribbon I stuck it on the card base and also added the matted flowers (fantastic ready to use 3-d sticker made by Sandylion) I stamped the sentiment from the "Faux Ribbon" set from Papertrey Ink, punched it with the small oval (SU). Then I used the small side of my cropidile to punch a hole, snipped it and added it through the ribbon bow on the stickers. Last but not least, I added a strip of matching pattern paper to the inside flap of the card and presto. Seriously, I think it took me about 10 mins to make the card.
Supplies: whisper white c/s, going gray ink from Stampin Up, Sentiment from Papertrey Ink, Sandylion sticker, grey Bazzil Bling for sticker matte, Cuttlebug & embossing folder, Martha Stewart border punch & ribbon, Patterned paper from Lori Siebert paper block.
