Gifts for You!

I'm back with a card today...using one of my favourite Penny Black stamps - 'Gifts for You!' The papers are by BasicGrey - the pink one is from the 'Sultry' pad, and the green one is from the 'Lemonade' pad...I tried to create a patchwork effect pattern using triangles - a great way of making your scraps go further! I distressed the edges a little, and then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen.

Challenges for this card:

Gorgeous card. I love the patchwork effect - I have so many odd scraps of paper that I need to try that.
Congrats on PBS's 3rd Birthday.
