county fair quilt block...

Hey friends!!  Have a little card to share that I made today while I watched the Daytona 500!  My favorite driver Matt Kenseth didn't finish very well, but it was still a great race!   My card uses the color combo from Colour Me...! and the layout from CAS(E) this Sketch.  I did change the orientation of the sketch.

 

I had never used the quilt block die from my PTI Make It Market County Fair kit and when I saw the Colour Me...! combo I just had to use it to make a little quilt block.  I die cut three different patterned papers from Stampin Up! (I'm not going to give you the names as I did A LOT of rummaging through my extensive collection of patterned papers to come up with ones that worked for the challenge!).   I die cut everything and then inlaid all the pieces into a quilt block that I die cut from white cardstock.   Layered everything up and finished it off with a button/twine embellishment.  I didn't add a sentiment because there just wasn't a good spot on the front of the card for one and I don't put something on a card just for the sake of having it there!  At some point I will probably just finish the inside of the card with a sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Pool Party; Bazzill red; PP:  Stampin Up!;  Die:  PTI quilt block die; PTI button; My Mind's Eye baker's twine
