Quilting It Up



Today's card is definitely outside of my comfort zone. I decided to try to play along with the SCACD challenge. The goal was to create a card using a stamp from the site along with a quilting technique. I do not do machine stitching so this one was pieced the old fashioned way... glue and faux stitching... compliments of my trusty black acid free pen and straight edge. I really like how it turned out! Here's to trying new techniques!
