Less is More...Pick a Square

Happy Wednesday!!  My wonderful sister came into town last Friday and left last night...so I have not been posting cards or getting to many blogs in a while.  Having her visit...and especially over the Memorial Day weekend was sweet and we had SUCH a nice time, but I am back and will be getting back to looking at all the cards I didn't get to last week!  Oh what fun I have been having in my "haven"...I am so happy to be stamping again!!
I made this card for Less is More's challenge17...

This card's design had 5 squares, of which we were to choose one of the squares for our design and leave the other 4 as pure white space...or in my case So Saffron space. We were allowed to put the sentiment outside the square...which was great because I did!! The card is 4 1/4" square, the center square is 2 1/2", the frame an extra 1/16" on each side.
I used a stamp from Memory Box...stamped in black and dotted with Liquid Pearls. I framed in black and popped up on textured cardstock.  Added a small sentiment in corner and clear embossed.  Super simple...SUPER FUN!!
Things I used:
Stamps: Memory Box, Stampin Up Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Bazzill white and black, textured So Saffron
Ink: stazon black
Extras: clear embossing powder, Ranger Liquid Pearls Buttercup, pop up dots
