Floral Patchwork Quilt

I was fortunate to win a gift voucher from Seven Hills Crafts as part of the Less is More 10th Birthday Celebrations.  After looking at my 'Wish List' I chose a Quilt Die I had first seen on Liz's Blog' and used it to make this snippets card.   As I've kept all the small pieces I've not used to make this card I'll be making another card with all the tiny snippets made from snippets.

I die cut the frame from dark purple pearlescent card and attached it to the front of the card blank. I attached the snippets of paper to a piece of white paper and then die cut the quilt.  I inlaid the yellow and white floral paper in the centre of the quilt and the darker pink paper around the edges. 

To make this card I used:
     5" x 5" white matt card blank
     My Favorite Things 'Quilt Square Cover Up' die
     Snippets of Wild Rose Studio 'Annabelle's Garden' and 'Annabelle's Meadow' papers and dark purple pearlescent card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Crafty Calendar Challenge - Feminine

     Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies - March Challenge
     Love to Craft - Anything Goes
     NBUS - Challenge 24 (my new quilt die)

What a lovely card Kath - such pretty papers. I have this die and don't use it often enough! It's lovely for Christmas cards - you could perhaps take a lot of ready cut and batched die cuts to Zeb to asssemble?
