Crazy Quilts or Just Plain Crazy
I am super excited. I am now creating for MFP's Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge. This week the topic is to make a patchwork background. I personally love crazy quilts so I chose to make that as my background. I'm currently in the process of making a denim one from my kids cast-off denim. The possibilities for embellishment is endless and very fun.
This card uses up lots of scraps from one of my Mind's Eye 6 x 6 pads. One of my new year's resolutions is to use up some of my designer paper and I'm almost done with this set. I used MFP's Snowflakes for the image and the sentiment is from MFP's Fall Apples. I don't think you can see it in the image but I embossed both with sparkly embossing powder and it looks so beautiful in real life. Both are also popped up on a bit of recycled rubber just for some visual interest.
I'm tempted to play again - there are so many beautiful quilting patterns. I love nine blocks and wonky log cabins. I hope you'll join us!
