Top Note Quilt ~ Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge #14

Well, I'm back from a fun 18-hour girls' road trip. We found a NEW scrapbook store there and got some great new paper. As well, I bought 4 pairs of new shoes, one of which is so HOT I may get arrested at my nephew's wedding ;) Anyways, onto the card. I've been wanting to make a top note quilted panel for ages ever since I saw this post. I thought Dawn's new colour challenge would be the perfect place to try it out. It was also a great way to use up some of the PTI dp I have. I also got to sew again and use my new EK dotted scallop punch {double smile}.

I also made the flower with Nicole Heady's tutorial in mind. Just trying something different...gave the button flowers a rest today :) Here are a couple of closeups. I used some dp for a background as the card disappeared on an all white background. Oh, on a last note, my friend and I saw Julie and Julia on our trip and you MUST go see it!! It's so funny and fabulous and different from your run of the mill comedy...I want to see it again! Have a wonderful day!














What's In It?
Stamps: PTI floral frenzy, birthday basics
Paper: SU vanilla, pure pomegranate; PTI raspberry fizz, dp; pink polkadots (craft supply)
Ink: SU eggplant; perfect plum
Accessories: stitching; canvas; cuttlebug flower dies; EK dotted scallop punch; button; SU square punch, top note die; PTI twill ribbon; dritz pins
