Anywho.. I found this sketch over at Card Patterns (Sketch 104) and I really wanted to try and do something a little different with it - and not take the 'squares' so literally.. here is the sketch..
..and here is my interpretation of it..
Not the straightest lining up.. ever.. but hey! I like it! I don't think the wonky angle of the photo does it much justice either!! LOL. This is the first time I have used Stampin' Write Markers - and I really like the versatility they give, you can colour areas of your stamp any which way you like! I have added faux stitching around one square and added a vellum square with an embossed senitment on from the same stamp set as the image! :)
