Happy Thursday Peeps!
Today I am sharing a card I made using the color challenge this week on Splitcoaststampers.
The colors to use are Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Basic Gray and neutral of ivory or white.
I have to say right off, my blue is not Island Indigo, I thought it was when I pulled it out and started my quilt block, but discovered later when I got out my Indigo card stock out that it was not. I didn't want to re-do my quilt block so I just went with it.
I have been making a bunch of these quilt block cards lately, I have some more to show you at a later date, they are so fun. I just looked at some on the internet and used them as a guide for making mine.
I used my SU grid paper to build the block on. Starting with 1 inch squares of the papers and lining them up as I pieced the block. Most of the squares are cut in half on a diagonal. After the quilt block is all done, just cut out your grid paper, trim the edges and emboss, it works out great!
I used a couple of new items on here, the Lucky Limeade DSP is from the upcoming SAB as is the sentiment, is from a SAB set. I added some basic gray satin ribbon with an antique brad in the middle and tucked the sentiment under the edge of the bow.
Well, that is all from me today, thanks for coming by and we will talk again soon!
That's a great card! Nice job on all the little details that make the card flow together perfectly!
