Today is the start of the September challenge at Kraftyhands. We had a break with the challenge for August while things were shuffled round but we've stuck to the previously announced theme of
"Quilts & Patchwork"
This challenge is just for fun. A full set of the rules are on the blog.
I made a patchwork card for August but I thought I'd make a new one for September.
I printed one of the woodgrain papers from the Seeds of Love CD and fixed it to an 8"x 8" card blank. I inked around the edges with Brushed Corduroy DI.
All the papers and images are from the Butterfly Botanicals CD. I created a patchwork of mats for the various images and inked all the edges. I printed the butterflies twice so I could give them some dimension. I punched the words out and mounted them on buttons as a frame.
I used maps and some of the smaller elements on the CD to decorate the other panels and finished the card with metal butterflies and a cabochon rose.

I'm now going to be busy making some samples from a gorgeous new CD. It is called Totally Tiffany Craft and is the first CD in our fabulous new format. It's already available for pre-order in the Kraftyhands shop.
