Papertake Weekly Challenge - Be there or be square

I have decided this week to have a go at the papertake's weekly challenge. This week they have asked for square so here is my entry.
As i was making easter cards i decided to have an easter theme with this card. I used a nice floral paper with a grid pattern on it, fixed to the card with brads. I then used my cuttlebug to emboss a square pattern onto some pink and blue card, which i then used my stamp die to cut them out.
The easter eggs and the sentiment were from this months 'Lets Make Cards'. I then finished it off with eyelets threaded with organza ribbon.
