Countdown to A*MUSE*A*PALOOZA

AMAP Challenge #1

Each Monday over on the A Muse News Blog a challenge will be posted as we count-down the days to A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA. And guess whaaaaat....there's gonna be PRIZES!!

The challenge for this week is SQUARE. Create a card using the word SQUARE as your inspiration. Anything goes as long as you use at least 1 A Muse image on your project. Get all the details for Challenge #1 HERE.

My interpretation - square notecard & square punched out windows.

The square windows are punched out with a 1" square punch. I stamped the Salmon several times on the inside. I stamped it again on scrap and cut out to adhere to front of card. Happy Father's Day comes from the Mainly Men Clear Set. And check out those killer Mini Fasteners by Tim Holtz that look like little screws!!! Toooooo stinkin' CUTE! A little light sponging around the edges of cardbase and around the windows. easy easy easy!
