Scrappy Country Quilt

Happy Friday to you!!!
Not only is it Friday, but it also the 15th of the month
which brings us to a new challenge at the "Dies R Us" blog.....
Our new challenge is "Stitching"


I decided to get creative with my paper scraps and dies.
I used a 1" punch and punched 24 1" squares of various paper scraps.
I slightly adhered each down on a piece of card stock using a glue stick
I laid a Spellbinders Devine Eleoquence die on top, centered it then cut it out.  
Once it was cut I "stitched" across the entire thing 
to resemble a country patchwork quilt!!


I used Spellbinders Blooms 4  for my flowers, colored with Pan Pastels
and added Spellbinders Sprigs under them

A few added details, bling to the flower centers, a butterfly, gingham ribbon and button
and my card was created!!

I love how it turned out, with all it's pretty colors!!

Now it's YOUR turn to head on over to the Dies R Us blog
and check out all the "pretties" the DT has for you and then join in the challenge....
