Hip to be Square - TSTR #5

This week at The Shabby Tea Room we were given a photo of a vintage quilt for inspiration and asked to create a card or project based off of squares.....lots of them. How many squares can you get on one card? We'll soon find out! :)

This card was created using papers from October Afternoon that have been machine sewn and inked, chipboard embellishment from Tattered Angels, glitter from Martha Stewart, paper stain from Tim Holtz, twine from Papertrey Ink, decorative pin from Maya Road, paper flower from Prima, shabby seam binding ribbon, misc, rhinestone and vintage lace.

This was somewhat of a challenge - squares....and lots of them is a little tough!;)
I can't wait to see how the quilt photo has inspired everyone else. Have a great evening! Cathy xx :)
