When Life throws you Scraps

Hello... just wanted to show you this fun quilt designed card I made for yesterday's colour challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. Challenge colours - soft suede, elegant eggplant, riding hood red, neutrals - ivory, white or black. My fun Stella image is from Bugaboo Stamps, this one is from the Stella Sewing digital images. I coloured the image with Tombow and Stampin up markers. I cut out 3 different designer papers in 1" squares and stuck them down on a piece of card stock. Used the Topnote die for the shape. Sewed all designer papers together with zig zag stitch. Sponged edges with Stazon Violet. Matted image with purple card stock and sewed around image. Sewed on the three buttons. Stamped the sentiment (from Stampin Ups Quilt Quips set) on the soft suede card stock and then ran it through the Cuttlebug with Divine swirl folder. Matted with purple. I tore a strip of purple card stock and taped it to the bottom of the card - I had stamped the sentiment up to far and it didn't look right. So I felt that it needed something at the bottom to even it out. I am very pleased with how this turned out.

Thanks for stopping in,
Hugs.. pat
