And here is my take on the sketch challenge. Love the sketch. It works perfectly with Very Square! Ok, maybe more that love this sketch. :)

To make the squares “smaller,” once they were stamped onto cardstock, I cut them out using Classic Squares Large from Spellbinders™. Die #4 lines up with the outside edge of the stamped square image, making it simple to cut out evenly.

The leaves were fun to make. I stamped the diamond background from Very Square onto cardstock. Then I die cut a circle. Placing the circle of cardstock over half of the circle die template, I ran it through the machine again. Perfect little leaf! :)

Here are some Mint Motif sightings from the web:
