Patchwork Tilda

 Here's one that I'd forgotten about, a card made for my lovely Sister-in-law a few weeks ago. I bought these papers with her in mind as she's a real whiz on the sewing machine, would love to have her skill!
She made a beautiful patchwork throw a while back  and that's what inspired my card.

The Tilda 12x12 pad has a couple of pages of die cuts so I decoupaged using two of the sewing machines. I even threaded the bobbin and added a snippet of cotton fabric and some ricrac to give the impression of it being mid sew and made a tape end to add to my tape measure ribbon where I tucked in the sentiment.
  Then you know me, sometimes bunting is the only way to go lol!
