Nesting Squares

I joined a 'One Card a Month'  or OCAM swap with the Michael Strong Yahoo Group. I used Michael Strong Nesting Squares.
 I added distress inks onto the cardstock, then stamped the image. I colored/stamped again, and cut out the center layer. I added the flower with a dimensional in the center of the .
small square- and had to add some Stickles. I added white Pen to some of the circles in the image.

A side view of the sparkle

 I figured this would be a fabulous way to ink up my unused stamps.  This is the first time I have used the Nesting Squares stamp.

 I have been MIA again- my back went out last week- I am back up and about and will survive.  I will be around to blogs once I can!!!

I will enter the challenge at One Stitch at a Time- Layering

Thanks for stopping by!

Shelly, You've been busy while I was gone. I love this card with those beautiful squares! Great dimension, my friend. I'm playing catch up before I leave once again for another couple of weeks of vacation travel. I'll be MIA but will visit again when I return. :-D

Wow, love this. Great color choices and those squares are so pretty. It reminds me of a now non existent rubber stamp company where you could take parts of the stamp and layer to create more depth.
