Freshly Made #95

Hey all!  I hope your weekend is going great so far.  It looks like I may get a chance to get some crafting done today and I say "yay!" to that.

Yesterday I worked on a card for Freshly Made from this sketch.
I kept reading Darnell's blog about her NBUS (never before used schtuff - her word not mine) and decided it was time to break out my Wplus9 quilt die cut.  I don't usually buy things I'm not going to use right away but with anything having to do with quilts, I have to have it, just in case.  *_*

I used the pinwheel pattern die with paper from Crate Paper's On Trend pad.  Three different dies are included in the set and I thought this one worked best with the paper.  I gave it a green border to set it off, since quilts usually have borders, and used the same green as a shadow for my tag.  The tags and stamp are from My Craft Spot.  The burgundy piece is embossed with a flower folder that came with my Cuttlebug and all of it is mounted on kraft cardstock, with foam tape popping up the quilt.  One of my blogger friends once said that quilting with paper is much cheaper, and I agree, but the pieces are a LOT smaller.

ETA:  I just saw the challenge at CAS on Sunday and am linking this card up with them, too.  Their challenge is called Krafty Twinery, use kraft cardstock and twine, which I surely did.  How fortuitous!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.
