Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #31 - Friendship


This week over at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge we are making a card or project for a special friend, but the catch is that you must design your own background paper. I embossed flowers on my paper to go with the theme of flowers that I started on this card. I used 2 quilt sets that I had from Nicole Heady called Quilter's Sampler and Quilter's Sampler Additions. I love these sets as you can design whatever quilt you want. I mounted the squares together to form a quilt, and inbetween each corner I used embroidery thread and made french knots. I used my scalloped punch from Martha Stewart to create the lacy look and accented it with some polka dot ribbon and a flower. I used the sentiment about Friendship from the set as well. I thought the buttons sewn with the same embroidery thread added the homemade look to my card. Join in with us this week as we have 2 fabulous prizes: the first one is donated from Liza and is a Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing Folder,
and our second prize is donated from Doodle Street by Cassandra and is one digi-image of winner's choice. Hope to see your creations this week. Pop on over to the rest of the DT on my sidebar and check out their beautiful creations.

This is a really nice Friendship card. I really like how you incorporated all the colours from your paper into your quilt! Beautiful job Carolyn. I also like the french knots you placed in the center of the each square! Nice touch!

Wow, very pretty. I love your design. You've been busy or I've been lacking on my posting?? LOL! Maybe both? Love all your DT papers and you did a great job on this one. That quilt is gorgeous.
