Asian Dream (SC278)

Today's Sketch Challenge over at SCS was four squares with one larger square in the middle. The example was a square card, but it could be converted to an A2 size card with rectangles instead of squares. I didn't want to use designer paper for my squares. I guess I just wanted to be different. I used a Ruby Red (retiring color) base card to make this 4.25" square card. I matted white on black for my squares and added the die cuts which were cut out of black with an "Architectural Accents" Sizzlit. This looked Asian to me, so I went with it. The stamp is from "Dream Gardens". The red center piece was punched with the Pinking Hearts Corner Punch. I used some punched out pieces to recreate the design on one corner of the inside of the card. Everything used to make this card, except the Sizzlit, came from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!
