It's a quilt thing!

I had a nice Girls weekend away to Cape Cod. My friends mom is a customer of mine and we got to spend some time together, because unfortunately my friend got a stomach bug. Sadie is a big Quilter and she was showing me some of the projects she was working on. She also placed and order for a stamp set, so I wanted to make her a card to Thank her for her order and for letting me stay at their house.
This card was inspired by my attempt to try "faux quilt card". Not too hard, just punched a bunch of 1-1/4 inch squares from a hostess pack of designer paper. Then just snailed them down and drew on "x" with my black journaling marker.
The sketch is Late Night Stampers sketch challenge #25.

just buzzin by (and teeny tiny wishes- new sneak peek for Fall Winter cattie)
cardstock: bashful blue, chocolate chip, watercolor paper and hostess prints pack dsp
ink: black stazon and choc chip
access: crystal effects, dazzling diamonds, watercolor wonder crayons, latte buttons, linen thread
