Mod Squad Chalolenge - Make it Square!

I am the host for this weeks Mod Sqaud Challenge, I have a simple challenge for you today.  Just make your card square.  I love square cards,, but don't often make them.  It is usually because I need to make an envelope.  but what fun is that to have a matching envelope for your card.

Here is my example this week.  
I started out by simply using a square die, and it took off from there. The base is white watercolor paper from Strathmore. The white layer on the top with the die cut is GKD layering weight paper.  I added another layer of white with the image stamped and colored on it.  I am just not that sure of myself to stamp and color directly on the die.  After it was all completed, I simply die cut the image and layered it on top, using foam tape to give it dimension. The bow was added after watching Gina K make several bows for cards.  I had forgotten to use them too. 

Here was my chance to make a matching envelope and also use up some papers that I had, to line the inside.  Now I had a really different card to send to someone special. I wonder who it will be?

Supplies used are:
Water color paper
GKD white layering paper
Spellbinder die, Adorning Squares
Copic markers R20, R14, R29 tulips G40, G43, G46, YG11 YG23 for the leaves
Pitcher, C1, C3, C5, C7
