Vintage Patchwork Card

I totally fell in love with the most beautiful card by Julie Kettlewell and she very kindly granted me permission to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) it! Julie is a very talented lady as you can see from her creations on the blog: juliesjapes.

Julie's card is pictured below:

And here is my version of the card:

I have not done stitching like in Julie's card, instead I have embossed the whole panel to create a quilted feel to it. I swapped out the bow for a button, and changed to a different ribbon and stamp on the label. I also chose to match the patterned papers to Wild Wasabi green, opposed to Julie's blue colour scheme.

Another thing I LOVE about this card is that it is great for using up those tiny scraps left over from other projects - I had loads of the Springtime Vintage patterned papers left over, and now they are retired I can't demo with them...

Why not leave me a comment saying who inspires your creative juices?

Finally I am entering a single challenge with this card:
