Patchwork pals

Over two years ago, in a moment of weakness (mmmm another one!) I bought a Patchwork Pals kit from QVC because I thought I would be able to make some quick Christmas cards with it. Well, I didn't use any of it till after a year had gone by and I've still got loads of it, none of which has been used for this year's Christmas cards. So I thought it was about time to use some of it, spurred on by ABC Christmas challenge: U for unused stash'. This time, I remembered to take a picture of the stash before putting the card together, but in the end I also added a matching piece at the back of the card to hide where I'd wrapped the sparkly ribbon (this wasn't part of the PP kit) and also the 'with love' sentiment.

So this is the card:
The piece on the back covers up the ribbon that has been wrapped round.

Lavender and lace

'Lavender and lace' sounds like an old movie, doesn't it? It's Allsorts challenge 125.

The components of this card were sparked off by the bingo challenge this week for Totally Gorjuss 102:

So you need to pick a line...vertical, horizontal or diagonally, or if you're adventurous all four corners.

Lace

Ribbons

Bows

Stars

Buttons

Pearls

Flowers

Swirls

Bling


I chose the diagonal line starting from the left hand corner - so I included lace, buttons and bling, but couldn't resist a bit of ribbon thrown in to the mix!

Papers are Forever Friends hugs and cuddles.
