IO Challenge- Square Cards

Greetings everyone!  Today the IO challenge was to make a square card.  You might notice that part of my flower extends past the card.  I popped it up onto a square card that is small enough that it will fit into a standard A2 envelope even though part of it hangs over the edge.

To make the card, I embossed the Darling Dahlia (H8715) onto 140lb watercolor paper with white embossing powder and then colored it with one color of Peerless watercolor paint (Arbutus Pink).  To make some areas darker, I just added more of the paint.  To finish the card, I added the Hello greeting (A3759).

This is a stunning card-loved the way the choice of black cardstock for the base really accentuates the pink of the flower,
