Square Thanks


It's hip to be square at CAS-ual Fridays!  Square card base and CAS design are the only requirements this week so there's lots of room to play.  I've been in a bit of a school card mode (weird since I don't have kids) and went for a teacher thank you card.  I don't make one layer cards very often but I'm pleased with how this one turned out.  Can't go wrong with rainbow colours and a touch of bling.  :)  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (White) Handy Hippo
Stamps:  (Pencil & sentiment from Happy Trails) PTI
Ink:  (Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry) Stampin' Up
Gem:  (Ladybug assortments) Doodlebug
