the BEST in you
I combined three challenges for this card tonight...the Pals Paper Art Challenge #40: Monochromatic Blues, The Shabby Tea Room Week #7 Comforts of Home and...
the Fall-to Layout #88 at the Clean & Simple stamping blog. This fab sketch was the perfect one to showcase a "quilted" panel for my shabby chic card.
I LOVE quilts, so Debbie's shabby inspiration was right up my alley. I immediately thought of the Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper to create a "quilted" look on my card. There's a little stitching around the paper-pieced panel...but would've been even better to stitch around each piece. If you look closely, you'll see that I've dry embossed the card base as well as the panel to mimic a quilt even more.
