Gruffies and Guest Challenge Blog - April 2015 - Anything goes or the option of PATCHWORK

Today it is time for me to show you another card for the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog.

The topic for April 2015 is "anything goes with the option of patchwork".

Don't forget you do have the option of anything goes + if you do use the theme (this month it is "patchwork") you will get 2 chances in the prize draw.

Don't forget to enter the challenge you MUST use a House Mouse, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies image.

We also take email entries, Facebook entries and if you fancy joining us on the team for a month please put GDT after your name in the linky.

Our sponsor for this challenge is from the super Bugaboo Stamps.
The winner will get 7 digital stamps of their choice from Bugaboo Stamps.
For my card I have used the Joanna Sheen Original Project Book and CD to get this gorgeous image and backing paper.

The design sheet for this image had various sized toppers so I have used the largest as the main topper and used another to decoupage the mice with their sewing machine.  The remaining toppers I have used to decorate the inside and back of the card.

The embossing on the card is using my Marianne Designs honeycomb embossing folder which comes with a die so that you can in-fill the areas if you like.  I chose to do this as although the backing paper is patchwork I thought adding the little die-cuts added another form of patchwork.

I have finished the card off with lace, ribbon, buttons, pins and a sentiment frame and various other embellishments (pin holder, cotton reels, thimble and tape) from the Polkadoodles Studio 12 Picknix CD.

Cute card and I really love the sentiment! so fitting to add with the sewing machine. I was just using my real sewing machine last evening. I'll have to remember this saying for when I use my stamp - sewing machine. Thanks for joining us at the creative card crew sentiment challenge.
