An Early Fourth of July Card

Today I'm posting a card I'm teaching at Scrapdoodles in June. This card focuses on a quilted background technique I learned a few years ago. I love how it came together! Here it is:



If you live near Fredericksburg, VA, join me on June 13th at 1:30pm. We will be making 4 cards and the cost is $16.00. To sign up, please call Scrapdoodles at (540) 548-3788.

Who's excited to see how wins American Idol tonight? I can't wait! I am rooting for Chris but if Adam wins, I'll still be OK. They both have talent... I just like Chris' sound better!

Hope you all are having a fabulous day! Thanks for stopping by for a peek!

I love this card! The paper is fun, cute, I don't know...it covers all the aspects. Do you cut the paper to fit like paper piecing or do you layer them? I agree with lovecme that it would make a wonderful scrapbook page background. Thanks for sharing your talent and I do wish I lived closer to attend.

Tessa, early or not...my goodness me it's beautiful! I love this look and it must of taken a wee while to get it looking so perfect. I love the way you have chalked all the edges just smoothly seperating each section.

Top Dollar!!

Wish I lived near I would come along :-(

hugs

Have FUN!
