Dare to Be Different

I’d say this card is a little different for me, and I think I will have to send it to a male recipient. The influence of the inspiration picture (a very modern-looking rug) on this January Week 2 Viva la Verve sketch challenge card must be apparent.

The two rows of tiny squares were stamped and embossed after I had already assembled the card, and you’ll notice the squares aren’t all the same size (which they should be). I guess I was pushing down too hard on one end of the rubber stamp!

Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. It’s not too late to leave a comment on this post and possibly win some blog candy!

    Vera, I see you said the small squares being different size was a mistake, but I think it really adds to it. They look like they are getting bigger and do well with the layout.
