GDT @Creative Inspirations Week #3

The theme for this week’s challenge over at the Creative Inspirations Challenge Blog is patchwork. Here’s Wikipedia’s definition:

Patchwork or “pieced work” is a form of needlework that involves sewing together pieces of fabric into a larger design. The larger design is usually based on repeat patterns built up with different colored shapes. These shapes are carefully measured and cut, straight-sided, basic geometric shapes making them easy to piece together.

I decided to go with one of my favorite color combos; pink and green. I had great fun cutting out the pieces from the different designer papers (thanks heaven for nesties :-)) and putting the panel together. I must admit though that I liked the panel so much that I found it a bit hard having to cover it with the stamped image and the flowers…LOL

Speaking of the flowers; unusually for me, for this card, I didn’t use any from Wild Orchid Crafts; the flowers are from an old scrapbook set I bought years ago; I don’t have any papers left, but I still had a few flowers lying around; I think they go so well with these K&Company papers.

The card is a birthday card for my best friend here in the UK; I discovered Sarah Kay in recent years through crafting, however she has known and liked SK since childhood. Thus; the choice of stamp brand was easy. Though this “Precious Moments” SK stamp is my oldest SK stamp, it’s also my most precious one!
