Patchwork Quilt



Good morning!! Happy Easter everyone! This card was made for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge at http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/.This is 1 of the harder challenges for me because as soon as I saw the sketch I thought of something quilted. I had a cookout last weekend and my mom brought me a paper pack from DCWV called Linen Closet for being the "hostess with the mostest" lol..Think I should have her over every weekend (just kidding mom). That paper is beautiful!! I went ahead and started making a card and I did not like it!! Was not going to post it. I then proceeded to make a different card to which I will be putting into the CAS MM challenge. Last night I was bound and determined to do this card, so here it is! The stamp set is from PTI. I also used crochet ribbon, embroidery floss, white cardstock and brads. Thanks for looking and have a wonderful Easter!!

OMG, two beautiful cards! Absolutely love the pastel colors of your CAS card and that so sweet image. Embossing is wonderful, I love the emboss dp and this looks beautiful.

Your second card with lacing is just awesome. Love that sentiment, and the papers you chose are perfect. The lacing is amazing.

You have done a wonderful job with both sketches for the MMSC this week. We are so happy that you shared them with us.

What beautiful takes on both sketches!

Brenda, this is SO lovely! As soon as I saw the colors, I was thinking, "These are SO my colors!" Then when you mentioned the DCWV Linen Closet stack, I remembered I'd seen it and wanted it. Of course now that you've used this paper so beautifully, I really MUST go find that paper! :) Thanks for playing along with us this week. Michelle MMDT
