Bling and Squares

I borrowed some Fiskars punches -- the scalloped square and circle -- and  I thought it would be so simple to come up with a design that I could incoorperate them into. I quickly discovered that I had a challenge on my hands, 'cause nothing I tried worked out the way I wanted. :( LOL

After a lot of tries and failures, I've finally made a card I like! Actually I love it! :) Love cards with bling...and this one has the bling as the centerpoint, which is cool! :) Gotta love bling! :)

I embossed the background and put the "wrong" side on top, which with my camra unfortunately is hard to pick up....cause the embossing doesn't pop as much as it could. White is tough to take pictures of...and have all the details come through. Hopefully you can get the idea...'cause the colouring isn't very good either. :p

TFL :)
