Inspired by a Quilt - Part Two

If you saw my post on Monday, you'd have seen a card that was inspired by this Williamsburg quilt:


I had a piece of stamped cardstock left over, and decided to make another card with it.


I'm entering Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge:  Country Comfort.  I find quilts very comforting, and have lots of country charm.  And of course, I've based my stamping on the Williamsburg quilt.

The flourish and sentiment are Verve - Celebration of Thanks, on a Labels Thirteen die cut.



A peek inside the card:


That does it for me!  I've got lots of housework to do.  See you later!



Stamps: Celebration of Thanks - Verve; Elements of Style - SU
Paper: Crumb Cake, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla - SU
Ink: Riding Hood Red - SU; Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko
Fibers: red sheer ribbon - Stamp Simply Ribbon Store
Other: pearls - Queen & Co; Doily Lace Trim punch - Martha Stewart; Big Shot; Labels Thirteen die - Spellbinders

I can say for a fact that this card is more lovely in person! Not that it's not lovely here...it's just that it's so special holding it in your hands with such a heartfelt note written inside. Thank you so much, my friend!
