Hi all! Vicki is our hostess over at Just Us Girls for this week's Color Week challenge. She has chosen a very unique color combination of blue, purple, and gray. I loved it!
Last fall, I took up a new craft...quilting. I fell in love with it and have made several quilts since then. I was very lucky to have found someone to do the quilting (the finishing part of the quilt process where the top of the quilt I made is combined with the inside batting and the backing piece using a machine called a longarm) just 15 minutes away. She is very talented at longarming, and did some amazing work on my quilts. Well, it seems she is moving south and taking her longarm with her! I'm so happy for her, but sad for me and her other customers.
Anyway, long story short, I wanted to make a card for her to express my happiness for her next chapter in her life and my thanks for all she's done for me. I pulled out this quilt die and die cut it from white card stock for the frame and three pattern papers in the challenge colors and created this pattern. Just like a quilt! The best part is that I can create two more cards with the left over pieces. I covered the front of the card base with gray pattern paper and added the hello. To finish it, I added crystals.
