Try It Out with a "T" #75

***Please be sure to scroll down and see my sneak peek for PMS!!****

Today's challenge is Crazy Quilts! Patchwork Quilts and Faux Sewing! Create a patchwork background on your cards with real or faux sewing stitches.


Be sure to check Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart, to see how you can play along and also to see the other design team members creations. Don't forget to check it on Thursday as well to see the rest of the teams creations!


I have to admit, I wasn't too sure of what patchwork was so I got some great inspiration in the SCS gallery, I really liked these cards~ Retirement Quilt, Apples and Patchwork, Viva La Verve You Can Do It, Patched Top Note, Patchwork Family and so many more!


Here's my attempt at it~~ I started by taking my scraps of designer paper and punching them into 1 1/4 squares, then I adhered them to my black cardstock and then cut out a top note from that. I was pleased when it worked, LOL!


I wanted an image that I could cut out and place on the "patchwork" so I looked through my stamps and decided to use Oh Baby, from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD, Sampler #3.


To make her stand out a bit more I put a white nestabilities die cut behind her. I did some faux sewing around the patchwork. Of course I had to have some sparkle and shimmer so I added some Sky Blue Creative Inspiration Paint to her dress, and some stickles to her flowers on her headband.


I was going to add some "more" to the card, maybe flowers or pearls or such but then decided I really liked it simple showing off that sweet baby so I left it as is.
