Color Throwdown #153 & Tuesday Trigger's Squares to Cherish

Don't you just love when two challenges just naturally go together.  Well this week's Color Throwdown and Tuesday's Trigger did just that.  The afghan is made up of smaller squares which inspired me to make a tiny square card.  Yep, it is only 3"x3".  The colors from the Trigger matched perfectly with the colors from the Color Throwdown.  I used Jim Holtz & Ranger Distress card stock as well as kraft paper from The Paper Company.  The stamps are Stella and Rose from My Mind's Eye.  I embossed with Adirondack--mushroom.  I lightly distressed the inner squares with Distress Ink--antique linen.  The twine is from JoAnn's.  I have no idea where the button came from.  I've had it for ages!  I left this little beaut without a sentiment.  I think it'll be used as a tag on a gift bag.  Thanks for checking it out.
