The Corrosive Challenge #223 - Hip to be Square

Hello!  I'm running a little late with my post for the new Corrosive Challenge!  We have an awesome new first time sponsor: Oddball Art!  Many of you know it's a challenge in itself for me to be punctual, but this time I did have legit reasons: an ink blob and a misbehaving printer were to blame!  Honest!  This version of Heidi Pinkyswear is the second one I colored after my Copic E47 decided to drip on her head!  Then my new Canon Pixma printer suddenly decided to stop printing from Word when I went to reprint her!  I swear it was a craft room mutiny!  After two hours of searching the Internet for a fix with nothing to show for it but building frustration, I gave up and went to bed.  Some things just are not meant to be!

The next day I was able to download Open Office as a work around, get Heidi reprinted and colored without incident, and finally made into a card for our "Hip to be Square" theme!  All you need to do to play along for your chance to win 3 digis from the lovely Lizzy Love is make a square project!  Visit her etsy shop HERE to see her fabulous images!

I made a humorous birthday card for a friend using Sketch Saturday (#358) as my starting point.  Heidi was colored with Copics and cut using Labels Eight Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  Paper is from my stash.  I added a buckle and type charm from Tim Holtz as well as a couple of flowers.  The other two dies used were First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics (My Favorite Things) and Scallop Border die (La-La-Land Crafts).  The sentiment is also from MFT, a set called More Essential Sentiments.  

Head over to The Corrosive Challenge blog to see just how square the design team can be!  While you're there, join in the fun!

Copics used:  E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E31, E79, R20, RV34, BG10, BG72, BG75
