Kraftyhands August 2015 Challenge

The August challenge at Kraftyhands has been postponed until September 7th while the team takes a break and exciting changes are made. Nevertheless, I will still show you the inspiration card I made for the challenge. You now have extra time to create something with this theme:
"Quilts and Patchwork"
You don't have to use Kraftyhands products to enter our challenge but it would be nice if you did.

I've used the lovely Perfectly Pastels CD for this card. I printed the four different papers on to linen card and ran them through an embossing folder before cutting them into triangles. I then arranged them onto a piece of yellow card and glued them all down. I added a length of satin ribbon before fixing onto a card base.

I printed the decoupaged image into photo paper and mounted up the layers with foam pads. I added the sentiment from the CD and finished the card with a pink bow.
Please visit the  Kraftyhands Challenge Blog for a full set of the challenge rules and the Kraftyhands shop for your crafty needs. Don't forget to watch the Kraftyhands shows on The British Craft Network.
