RoP Challenge #8 - Quilt Card


This week on the "Roses On Paper" blog site
the challenge is to make a "QUILT CARD"

Okay ladies,
you want a quilt, you got a quilt.

I used 1 inch squares from papers that I had
in my scraps. I believe that they are or were once
from the DCWV Nana's Kids paper stack.
Obviously the image is the adorable little Baby Tingla
She is sitting on a star that was cut from
one of the DCWV Nana's Kids papers
And the sentiment is from Stampin' Up's "For a Friend" set.
I used pink embroidery thread for the knots.
Flowers & Ribbon from my stash.
(the flower at the top looks red, but it's NOT red, it's dark pink)

Hope you like it! And the inside
3 layers of circles, and the edge of the white center circle
I inked with Stampin' Up "Pretty in Pink"
2 knots here as well using the same embroidery thread.
Unsure of where the sentiment came from.
(just a random Stamp I have)

I LOVE the little knots at the corners of the "quilt", it makes it look even more realistic! Where did you come up with such a good idea?
