Birthday Quilt



Come join us at http://www.creative-sketches.com/ and enter in your creation for this weeks sketch challenge!
Good Monday afternoon to you all!  I hope everyone had a wonderful not to hot weekend!  I just finished my card creation for three challenges: http://whimsicalwednesdays.blogspot.com/, http://www.ppc-challenges.blogspot.com/ and our very own http://www.creative-sketches.com/.  Plese hop on over and take a peek at our sketch this week and join in.  We are looking for some new and creative crafters to join in on our weekly challenges!  With the whimsical wednesday challenge, I get to use my scraps up (which I don't waste any paper!) with the picture perfect challenge, I get to use the pretty colors of Perfect Plum, Very Vanilla and Concord Crush.  The sketch goes with the surpise challenge for Thursday!!  I wanted to try and keep this card simple and not take anything away from the pretty quilt pattern.

I wanted to make a quilt looking card to give to my sister for her upcoming birthday (she hinted around that she wanted her card to look like a quilt!!)  I made it look even more vintage like by using the lace ribbon from SU! of course.  I added a small pearl to the center of the vanilla lattic.

SU! items used:
perfect plum, very vanilla and concord crush cardstock
victoria 5/8" lace ribbon, lattice bidz die, square lattice embossing folder, basic pearls

Cynthia I just love your card. I have used this cut out before but would have never come up with the idea of quilting it. Your sister is going to love it. Can't wait to see how you used all of your scraps. Really a stunning vintage card and way to rock it out using the colors this week from PPC. Thanks for sharing your inspiration with us.
