Shabby 4 Patch Vintage Roses

Hello everyone! Happy Friday!
Today I wanted to get a card made for a couple of challenges. I wanted to play in the Shabby Tea Room challenge, which was an inspiration challenge about the comforts of home. I also wanted to honor Carol over on SCS who was today's Queen for the Day. I chose this card of hers to case. I used her basic layout, omitted the sentiment and replaced it with this floral swag. I used this card of Carol's to get my vintage inspiration.

I used my Layers of Color Art Stamps set, Vintage Roses for this card. I stamped with Memento and colored with Copics. I also sponged heavily with distress inks. I used a Sizzix embossing folder for the chocolate layer, as it reminded me of the stitching I do between squares on a quilt. The base is Bazzill, the DP is a combination of K&Co and The Paper Studio. I sewed the 4 patches on and popped up the image.

I hope you like my homey quilt. Wrapping up in a quilt is like a big hug!!!

Be sure to check back on tomorrow morning, when we will have the Our Daily Bread designs May release Blog Hop! Starts at 8am eastern!!! See you then!
