using squares in your card designs with pretty pink posh

Do you use basic shape dies in your card designs? I have always loved circles but have recently tried incorporating some squares into my cards!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I have two cards with square designs to share with you and we are hopping to celebrate the newest Pretty Pink Posh so there are prizes to be won! (If you are hopping with us, you should be arriving from Ashlea's awesome blog!)

And before we talk about cards, I just want to say a GIANT CONGRATULATIONS to Paulina (the amazing lady behind Pretty Pink Posh) and her family on their newest addition! Their beautiful baby boy was born just a few weeks ago and I'm so very happy for them!
Ok, now let's talk about using squares! I've got a quick video on how these cards came together...


Now before you hop onto to Sandy's amazing blog (wait until you see what she made), one random & lucky commenter will win $25 to the EH shop! To enter for a chance to win, make sure to leave comments at each stop along the hop! Comment before Wednesday, March 25th at 11:59pm PDT. Winner will be notified by email.
Cardmaking has definitely been a balm for my anxious heart during this stressful time and I hope it can be for you too! 
Sending hugs your way!
Carly
