Four Squares

We're moving from 3 squares to 4 squares! Actually the Sketch Challenge at SCS last week was a 4 square layout.

First I made this card.....

It really doesn't do a thing for me!  I don't know about  you.

So, I tried this......

Adding that Rich Razzleberry backdrop helped a lot.  It's much better, but still not my favorite.  Can't love 'em all I guess.

The colors are from the ColourQ challenge.  I missed the deadline, mainly because I just couldn't get excited about posting this.

These stamps are really cute.  I need to try something else with them I think.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Cute by the Inch (Level 2 Hostess gift)
Ink:  Brocade Blue, Brilliant Blue, Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry (Note: Brocade Blue & Brilliant Blue are both retired.  Baja Breeze & Marina Mist would probably work well.  Hmm, maybe I'll try that!)
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Brilliant Blue
Accessories:  1 1/4" Square & Scallop Square Punches, Big Shot, Square Lattice EF, Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon (from last year), Basic Pearls.

Thanks for the visit.  Enjoy!

Both are great but I do like the Razzleberry addition. It is one of my favorite colors.

Well, I like both cards actually, but I see what you mean about adding that Razzleberry mat adding some 'oomph'. I do like your layout a whole bunch!
