It's hip to be square

I'm handling the demonstratable card challenge on SCS for the next couple of weeks. This week, we're using squares. I've been seeing squares everywhere on cards lately, and I really wanted to use my poor, neglected square punches. I was inspired by a card on Mary Jo Albright's blog where she made a card with 6 circles.
My color combo is Cameo Coral, Certainly Celery, Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede. I just love it! I saw it somewhere and wrote it down to try. I pulled out my Eastern Blooms set and stamped the 3 flowers. Then I dry embossed them. Love how that makes the flowers pop! I punched them out and layered them on scallop squares.
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Eastern Blooms, Sanded; Paper: Whisper White, Cameo Coral, Soft Suede; Ink: Cameo Coral, Certainly Celery, Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede; Accessories: scallop square punch, 1 1/4" square punch, Bermuda Bay grosgrain ribbon, Empressor, Floral Frenzy classy brass template
Happy stamping!

Beautiful card. I just ran into your site from SCS and am happy I did. I just became a demo and am scouring sites looking to see how ya'll do this.
