AAA cards challenge #11

Hi there!

Sketch time at AAA cards this week!

Victoria is treating us with an old favorite of mine... the classic 4 window box square layout!




Go on... pick your own colors and embellishments and show us your creativity!

Here's my take on the sketch...



A thank you card in apple green, black and white. I used my silhouette software programme to trace a quilting template I found on line. After cutting, I covered the pieces with washi tape, and built the quilt up again, using the frame as my guide, for perfect placement and removed it afterwards.

I really hope you will join us again this week!

Thanks for looking!

{PS. This is a scheduled post, I am taking a blogging break, sorry for not visiting you during the next month!}

Joe, alweer een waaroor ek mal is, vrou!! Daai lemmetjiegroen LEWE eenvoudig en is so stunning saam met die swart en wit!! Jou stukkies is so perfek geplaas en dit lyk of jy dit op foam tape gesit het vir lekker dimensie! Die enkele pereltjie so in die middel trek alles so pragtig saam!! Die font vir jou sentiment is weer so goed gekies!! Pragtig!!

Hoop julle hou nog lekker vakansie!! Geniet elke oomblik saam met julle vriende en familie!!!
Groete
