Square Contrast!

Hello Crafty buddies,

My card today was inspired by the 'square' challenge at CASology.

To be honest I wasn't going to enter this challenge as I had no ideas at first! Then when I was hunting through my stash I came across this crream card embossed with squares. I have no idea where it came from but thought it would make a perfect base for this challenge.

This is what I created using the card and quite a few contrasts, which I will explain below...if you have time to read! 


I made the card square using the square embossed card. Then I wanted to add contrast to this card so used a pretty butterfly as contrast to the geometric base....which to me looks quite masculine. I have always liked using cream and white together and for some more contrast I used black with these. And for even more contrast I used the circle against the square. I have no idea why this base wanted me to go down the contrast route but it kept telling me too! And I like the end result.

Have fun today x
