Crazy Quilt Card 2 Sketches 4 You Challenge




Hi all!  Another card for a challenge!  This challenge is for the 2Sketches4You site, and you are to use the sketch below.  The prize is Just Rite Stamps, yes, I am trying to win more of these wonderful stamps!  If I win, hope, hope, I will be able to get just about ALL the Just Rite Stamps that I would absolutely love to have!!!! The project designs on my "want to do" list using the Just Rite Stamps is long, but I have to wait until I am able to get them (or WIN them!!! lol).  Click on the pictures to enlarge.





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,

Shalom,

Sonya
