Inspired by a Quilt

These quilts and/or the theme of quilting are great inspiration for a stamping project.  Go check out the #124 Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge to be blown away.  For my card I was drawn to the upper right quilt in the inspiration photo.  What's super cool about my card is that the linen thread knots were tied just like a quilt.  I actually used a big needle to "tie" my quilted card panel.  The faux stitching lines are the result of the the Postage Punch.  How easy and effective is that?

All Supplies are from Stampin' Up!

Stamps - Postage Due, From the Heart
Inks - Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse, Cajun Craze, Pool Party, and Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Markers
Papers - Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Summer Starfruit, and Cajun Craze Card Stocks
Accessories - Postage, Decorative Label, and Boho Blossoms Punches, Linen Thread, and Mini Silver Brads
