I made my background paper to resemble a crazy quilt and paper pieced it with different papers. It is embellished like a cazy quilt with trims, beads, pearls, embroidery and charms. I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Antique Linen to give it a vintage feel. The inside of the card also had a paper pieced fan quilt. Using my Nesties I matted the sentiment that says "Life is a crazy quilt" in several fonts, the inside sentiment continues with "Embellish it with love!". This is where I would have loved to have the JR horizontal stamp block and several of the fonts. I could have stamped and embossed the sentiments using them! They make composing your own sentiments easy.
2Sketches4You is a new site (for me) that I have found and am not through exploring and I love the challenges and sketches that inspire my card making! Deadline for entry is January 30 midnight MST, so hop on over and play along with this great sketch. I do have some quilling in the works, but you will have to wait until the first of the month to see it. Until the next post,
Don't forget the Fred She Said January Challenge! Comments welcome as always!
