Double Challenge Quilted Friendship Card

This card is for the PTI Blog Hop and Mojo Monday this week.

The inspiration photo this month (see below) was so pretty and I was inspired by the mixy matchy fabric patterns. So I also chose  floral, stripe and polka dot patterns.

I cut the paper with the die from Button Boutique. I love that little guy! It wasn’t quite as hard as I thought to keep the papers lined up. I just used a clear ruler to guide me as I laid them down. The spool was stamped on kraft paper and cut out. I thinned out the middle section of the spool to allow for the thickness of the floss. Wouldn’t this be cute paper pieced too?

Beautiful card and design. I love the wound string and the "messy" stitching too!

I love your take on the challenge! The assorted patterns beautifully reflect the style of the inspiration. The spool of thread is an adorable accent!

What a fabulous card! I especially like the fun little spool with thread!
Rebecca, I just popped by to say thank you so much for the wonderful tips you left on the Create blog. I have recently pulled out my sewing machine (after far too many years of neglect) to use it on my paper projects. I appreciate the great information you provided. Thanks so much!
