CFC65 - Get well soon

Happy Friday to all!  I'm here with this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge:
This week our sponsor is Stampotique.  They have such a wide variety of stamps in very different styles, so you're sure to find something you love.  They were also generous enough to provide all the Girl Fridays with our choice of stamps.  How cool is that?!?  AND, the winner of this week's challenge will receive a $30 gift certificate to use in their store!  Woohoo!
Okay, so on to this week's challenge: square cards.  There is just something so cute about a square card.  I love 'em so hard!  And here is this week's paper yummy:

The chicken soup and the frame are all one stamp, and the "Get Well Soon." is a separate stamp.  The denim with the graph pattern inside was cut from a piece of patterned paper (part of that yummy Summer Fresh collection again!).  This card came together so quickly and easily.  I just stamped right onto that graph pattern, colored in the frame, the chicken, and the top and bottom of the can, then paper-pieced part of the can's label. I cut down a piece of hexagon patterned paper with a perforating blade to give it a bit of a rough edge.  I stitched around the edge, added a ribbon, and voila!  Here's a close-up of those cute Stampotique stamps:

And the ribbon:

I hope you'll join in the fun of square cards this week.  You have until next Thursday at noon EST to play along with this week's challenge.  Thanks for looking!
