Feel better soon !

 Hi there!

A couple of challenges lined up to inspire today's card!

For the memory challenge at Casology, I decided to create a card inspired by memories of my late aunt (mom's sister). She was a woman of many talents. Baking, sewing, name it and she could do it! My sisters and I were lucky to each receive a beautiful quilted blanket made from scraps of fabric left over from the many clothes she made.

The idea of a quilted blanket inspired the get well sentiment for CAS on Friday, and I thought the bright happy color palette of the Color Throwdown were perfect for my mini quilt.

To add interest to the squares, I stamped and embossed the squires in white for Addicted to CAS , using a floral stamp from Altenew.

Amazing to think how many different shapes can be created with 4 circles and 4 squares!

I used :

  • Quilt pattern from the Silhouette store #174097
  • Silhouette cameo
  • Paint a flower anemone stamp set from Altenew
  • Sentiment strip stamp set from Altenew
  • Versamark ink and white embossing powder
  • Blue, pink and green card stock
  • Versafine black ink
  • Misti

Challenges :

CASology ~ Memories

Addicted to CAS ~ Embossing (I used heat embossing)

Color Throwdown ~ Blue pink & green

CAS on Friday ~ Feel better

Thanks for visiting me today!

What a super card! I love handmade quilts, and your card definitely reminds me of one. I think I need to give the four squares/four circles idea a try!
