A Quilted Christmas

Happy Friday everyone!
It's Alphabet Challenge time and today's letter is... Q for Quilt!

For my card I followed a Dutchman's Puzzle quilt block pattern
 and adjusted it to fit onto a 5x5 card base. The button was cut with a MFT die and the Christmas papers are from Echo Park- the Season's Greetings collection. I ran the quilt block through the Darice Damask embossing folder, added a touch of Vintage Photo Distress ink so the embossing would show up better and there you have it!  I had so much fun making this card and what a perfect way to use up my paper scraps!!

For more inspiration be sure to stop by the challenge blog and take a look at the DT fabulous creations!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!

This really looks like a real quilt! I think it was really clever to place does pieces of DP onto an embossed background - it gives a raised look as with a real one made of fabrics!
