Use your scraps- Create Qulit cards :)

Hey friends! its me again..

Well!! It has been raining and there have been hailstorms as well and the weather is all ehhh! so dull and windy and cold!!I think its going to rain yet again today! So today I made something which suits the season and climate here...a quilt card!

 Notice the border you? I loved the result after giving it a try:)

Made use of the tits bits from a few papers that were leftovers of the projects in the past...these are
mostly if you notice DCWV fresh floral stack ones...
CAUTION- this is a never ending paper stack gals.i bought it 2 or 3 years back. Got sick of it . chopped the 12x12 papers to 6x6 thinking I might use them now. And still I have them just like that...!!phewww

I had seen such cards on the net and loved them..I usually collect all my loved stuff on pinterest..I feel this is the most awesome way to save space and also keep the pictures that you love with you!

Collect some scrap papers with nearly similar colours. And cut them into random square or rectangular pieces. Adjust and stick and sew!
I did some simple stitching but it definitely wasn't simple for took me so long!~!
The 'ENJOY' is from a dear bloggy friend of mine Kathy From--- The Daily Maker...An awesome crafter! really talented! the button and ribbon are from my stash and the gorgeous mulberry rose from Maninder's shop! isn't the colour just soooo ohhh!!!wow!
