Circle the Square...

Happy Tuesday,

A simple card today in Burgundy and white made using the Bee Balm ovals die set and a butterfly.

I cut a square of the burgundy card to 5 x 5" and simply cut the smallest die form the Bee Balm ovals set into each of the 4 sides adding this to a slightly larger layer of white.  I matted this onto another pice of the burgundy and added it to the front of a card blank cut with my Teardrop edge square card blank die.

I then simply added the tag die cut form the same set in the centre cut in the burgundy and white with a Vellum butterfly on the centre.

A few pearls and finished!

    Hello John,
    A beautiful card today (as always)
    I thought I had every colour of cardstock but don't have this gorgeous burgundy colour that you have used here. I must rectify that as I love the way that the colour makes it's own statement.
    Regards to all.
