Mondrian Valentine

I thought I give the usual Valentine's card a little modern twist - this is for art lovers.......

For the longest time I wanted to make a Mondrian card and the Keep it simple challenge finally made me do it. The theme is square. I used that cute little TAWS set called PIECES to help me out with the card:


The rest of the lines I drew in. The colored squares I stamped on card stock and cut them out. 


Lastly I cut my square "Mondrian" and mounted it on black paper to give it a nice defined edge. How would you like to have your own "Mondrian"? Just make one yourself......

I am also linking this card with the Time Out challenge - Love and/or Friendship - its a new challenge blog and is right now looking for a DT. They have some cool twists on their challenges - go over and check it out 

Addicted to CAS - LOVE - as expressed in the sentiment
