Quilters never grow old, they just go to pieces


This card was made for an order to give to a lady who makes quilts in her spare time. The exclusive ribbons from Crafty Ribbons were just perfect for my card. The backing paper is Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby and the top paper is Forever Friends which again was perfect with its patchwork look. I used Sizzix, Memory Box and Die-Versions dies. I stamped a background pattern on the sewing machine to make it look more lke an old Singer machine. The sentiment was made on the PC and cut with a Spellbinders die and edged with DI Weathered Wood. Some baker's twine and a sewing machine charm to finish.
