Simply Wonderful

Happy Thursday Peeps!!!
Sorry I have been MIA here on the blog this week, I have been crafting, not paper crafting, but still crafting, I will show you what I have been up to later.

I did take some time out this morning to put together this card using the Stamping 411 sketch Challenge.
I decide to go a bit whimsical with my layout. I really hate trying to line up small squares and getting it all centered on the base. So a better way for me was to NOT do that. I just tilted my squares, so not worries but it being perfectly lined up!!

The base of the card is Island Indigo card stock and then a layer of whisper white that I embossed with the perfect dot EF.
The squares are made with punches The scallop square in lucky limeade, rich razzleberry, tangerine tango and island indigo. Then a 1-1/4 inch square punch of white layered onto the scallop square.
The centers are made with a stamp from the Mixed Bunch stamp set. I stamped with razzleberry, tangerine and indigo inks. I used my 1 inch circle punch to punch these out. They are each layered onto a 1-1/4 inch circle of the same color. I off set the circles a bit, keeping with my theme of not lining everything up. 
The sentiment is from the "Everyday Phrases" stamp set.
I added some basic rhinestones and some Island Indigo ruffled ribbon.
Simply and sweet, I think!
Thanks for stopping by today and
