Do You Stack Up? Challenge #26

Hello everyone.  Today is Thursday and the beginning of a new challenge at Do You Stack Up?

We want to see something SQUARE!  Or, many square things.

We have THREE fabulous sponsors this week:
Stretch 'n Bubbles is giving away 4 single digital images.

The Stamping Boutique is giving the winner their choice of 5 digis.

Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps is giving away a $10 gift voucher for Stitchy Bear, Floppy Latte and Gingerloft digis.

My contribution for this week is a square card with as many squares incorporated as I could muster.
Isn't this a sweet image by Floppy Latte Designs called "Delayed Delivery"?!

The upper right hand corner of this image just seemed too bare!  It screamed for a sentiment.  A sentiment by Clear Dollar Stamps in the "Shore Treasures" set seemed appropriate. I would certainly treasure a friend who waits in the rain for me!

I did not have many square brads and certainly not in this odd orange/rust color.  I did have four square white brads and Colorbox fluid chalk inks.  Did you know that chalk inks can stick to just about anything if they are heat set?!  Two coats of the Colorbox Coral did the trick on the brads.

  The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS and the outer edge sponged with Colorbox chalk inks. I added Stickles to the flowers in the mouse's hand (paw?) which you can't see in the picture. I just could not get a shot that showed the sparkle. Sorry!

I found the following challenges to enter:
Bearly Mine - summer is here
Pollycraft Monday - make a splash
Sweet Stampin - something old (very old card base) something new (image)
Wags n Whiskers - summertime
Creative Inspirations - summer
Mark's Finest Papers - sparkle (Stickles on flowers)

Thanks for coming by and please look at the rest of the Design Team's contributions here.

Why is it mice are always cute in pictures? I don't like them much in real life. Gorgeous card - love the border punch and your colouring is wonderful
