A Patchwork Christmas

A Christmas card today.  I'm planning to make more of this design, as it was far quicker to make than I thought it would be.  

I used a Die-namics Quilt Square Cover-Up die.  The frame is gold glitter card, to add a touch of sparkle, and the patterned paper is from a paper pack which came free with a magazine this month.  The sentiment is raised up on foam pads.

I am joining in the following challenges:
That's Crafty Challenge ~ All of a Sparkle
Bizzy Bec's October Challenge ~ Anything Goes
HLS October Anything Goes with Dies Challenge

These papers are so pretty Liz and the gold glitter card goes beautifully, and the patchwork look is something a bit different on a Christmas card but it works really well. x

Brilliant Liz! I just might follow suit using that wonderful die for a few Christmas cards. It really has a star like look about it the way you combined the papers. Ha, and you were quick off the mark using your QCME freebie!
