Our Lives are like Quilts,

Stitched together with LOVE
Using my new Papertreyink set, Quilter's Sampler, I made this card for the Card Positioning Systems 101 Sketch Challenge! I flipped the sketch up side down. This particular quilt square is one of twelve in the set, along with other images and sentiments.
The quilt squares are colored with the Copics pictured here. I went into each colored square and used the colorless blender to highlight. I wanted some dimension and not just solid color.
Spellbinder Nestabilites were used for the green and purple circles. The white flower is from Papertrey's velvet flower collection. I added stitching around the petals with one strand of embroidery floss. Ribbon through button holes is Papertreyink's spring moss twill. Inside of card displays another heart shape button from Dill purchased at my local fabric store. Purple hemp is used in button holes and loop on left. The patterned paper is Papertrey Everyday Blessings.
This bug has really worn me out! I need to get busy and play catch up now! I hope you are having a great start to the week! Thanks so much for stopping by. Take good care!

Beautiful coloring and great take on the sketch. Now I remember why I stand in awe gazing at the quilt gallery at the state fair every year! I think the "bug" has covered the nation. We've had it here, too, for the last 3 weeks. It was a "gift" I really didn't want! Sending get well wishes your way.
