Friendship Quilt

Today I wanted to share a card that I started earlier this year for CPS challenge 104 but never got around to finishing. Since this week the CPS challenge is to pick any of this years sketches to do and this is the last day of the year I thought it was a great time to finish it. As you all probably know quilting and sewing are another love of mine so I decided to use the PTI Quilters Sampler Set for this card.

I started by stamping and punching out the log cabin squares then attaching them to a piece of cardstock. After that I colored them with my copics and a blender pen to get more of a watercolored looked. If you look closely you will also see a heart! I orginally saw it done on Peggysue's blog here. When I was done I matted the quilt piece on SU Lovely Lilac Cardstock. Next I made some Faux Felt from PTI Lavender Moon Cardstock and attached the finished quilt piece to it. The sentiment from the same set was stamped and embossed on a piece of faux felt as well. The back ground piece was ran through my cuttlebug and embossed with the striped embossing folder then added to a piece of New Leaf Cardstock. I finished the card off with some machine stitching and 2 vintage cream buttons.
As the year comes to a close I would like to take a moment and say thanks again to all of you that take the time to come by and visit. It really means a lot to me to know that there are people out there that enjoy my work and hearing about my life. I hope 2010 brings you all much good health,love and happiness. Be sure to stop back on Saturday when I will have a Pink project to share, until then be safe and have a great night!
