Female Birthday Card

Today I am sharing a card, which I made for a friend who loves to sew
and makes the most fabulous quilts.
Each year I try to use a quilting or a sewing theme for her card,
and this is what I came up with this year.
I thought the stitched square die was very useful this time!

The products I have used are:-
Lawn Fawn - Large Cross-Stitched Square Stackables
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Scalloped Squares
Sizzix - Framelits 'Hello' set of dies
Papers from 'Live Your Dreams' pad by Craft Sensations

Challenges entered:-
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Anything Goes
Daring Cardmakers - Spring Garden
Time Out - Home Sweet Home
Crafting By Designs - Girls or Flowers
Crafty Gals Corner - Pastels
The Crafty Addicts - Anything Goes/Add a Sentiment

Thanks for stopping by.
