Sunshine challenge!

  It's that time of the month again...time for the Shop Pumpkin Spice design team monthly hop and weekly challenge (you should have arrived here from sweet Missy's blog!)  This week's challenge:

  When I think sunshine, I think yellow.  And in my stash I still have scraps and pieces of My Mind's Eye Indie Chic "Nutmeg" papers.  I punched 1 1/4" squares from the various patterns in blue.  Then I found a previously punched circle in the blue/yellow floral pattern which I used behind the sentiment.  I added the layer of large yellow flowers as my card base.

  Quilt cards are my favorite way to use scraps.  After punching 12 squares, use a Xyron on a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of card stock and create your quilt.  I added faux stitching, which is optional.  Then I run the entire piece through an embossing folder.

papers:  My Mind's Eye Indie Chic "Nutmeg" Boy Checker, Family Laurel Burst (both sides), Hanging Out Roses, and History Blooms; XPEDX navy linen card stock
adhesive:  Xyron 900
sentiment:  SRM sticker

Happy Hopping!  Your next stop is Agnes.
