Squared Up Mashup

Second post of the day.  Are you impressed??? LOL.
I had a few moments this afternoon and thought I'd play along Friday Mashup's challenge for this week.
For some reason, I felt like making a square card.  And I wanted to use flowers.  And I wanted to make sure I used a set that is retiring after tomorrow (Fun & Fast Notes).  Then ingenuity struck and I did this frame using the Eyelet Ribbon Border punch.  I first saw the instructions on Dawn's blog.  Pretty nifty trick, huh?

I left the image uncolored, because I don't really like coloring.  Plus, I figured, simple is better on this particular one.  I only added some pearls to the flowers for accent.

My Supplies List (all supplies and images by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp Set(s): Fun & Fast Notes, Silhouette Sentiments
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Papers:  More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Boho Blossoms punch, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, Eyelet Ribbon Border punch, Square Lattice embossing folder, Basic Pearls
