ABC Christmas Challenge - Q is for...

I have another card for this week's ABC Christmas Challenge today, where the theme is:

'Q is for Quilting'
(Make a 'patchwork quilt' effect on your cards/projects)

We have two fabulous sponsors this time:


Prize from Lili of the Valley:


and


Prize from Crop Stop: a $15 Gift Certificate!

This time, I've made a more regular patchwork pattern, cutting my papers (from the 'Blitzen' pad by Bo Bunny) into triangles...distressing the edges, and adding faux stitching. The image is 'Christmas Bunny & Robin' from Lili of the Valley, which I coloured using watercolour pencils...adding some Stickles to the snow. The brads are by BasicGrey.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.
