SC53 square sketch challenge. My 1st square card, 4 1/4" x 4 1/4". A nice size that does not take extra postage or a large size envelope. Thanks Andrea for the great idea. I also used an older challenge by Beth......TLC40....Faux Silk. The patterned tissue for the faux silk and ribbon were from my coworker, Christine's retirement gift box that she gave me. She always teased me about saving ribbon, etc that I "might" be able to use on a card. The button is from my shopping spree with Leslie. Lots of friendships went into this card. Thank you girlfriends. Canvas, heartfelt flower and sentiment all embossed. Very rich looking IRL. Enjoy.

I took a guess that it was the scan and not canvas that has the flower loooking this way, mine have done that but usually before I have them sized.
This is one beautiful card, I love the rich color and the embossing just makes a statement, I love embossing backgrounds. Looks like the beginnings of retirment has done you well, hope to see many more and soon!
