Patchwork + Brad

Going a bit silly here at the moment, at least I managed to get some crafting done this morning for a couple of challenges:  365 Cards asked for Patchwork and Creative Corner Challenges asked for Brads or Eyelets - I don't actually possess any eyelets (and wouldn't know what to do with them if I did have some!) but I do have a pack or 6 of brads.  I used a single one in the centre of the flower, and made up a patchwork background with 1-inch squares of pink and green papers.  In true patchwork fashion the edges are slightly wonky but as quilters will soon tell you, you are not meant to make your patchwork perfect as only God is perfect!  So that saying has saved my bacon today LOL!

The background card is Certainly Celery, a nice soft green from Stampin' Up! and I've always loved these little house stamps - thought it went quite well with the greeting.

Anyway, enjoy the rest of the day, I may go for another walk up the hill as we did last weeekend (then again I may just stay home and do housework, arghhhh)

I hope you managed a walk up the hill. Such a shame to waste such a gorgeous day on housework. Love your card. Such restful colours.
