Patchwork Hello Card

Hooray for Friday! If you've been following my blog for long, then you know I love color challenges. Last night I made this Patchwork Hello Card using the colors from this weeks ColourQ challenge. The colors are:
  • Island Indigo
  • Bermuda Bay
  • Raspberry Ripple
  • Lucky Limeade
  • White
This card started with the idea of different patterned embossed squares. I selected four of my favorite embossing folders and ran each square through the Big Shot. I taped the squares together and backed them with a piece of white card stock. Then I stitched everything together for a patchwork look. I used the Lacy & Lovely stamp set for the focal image and sentiment. The finished size is 5" x 5". Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
