When Life Gives You Scraps

I made this card for a friend I haven't seen in a long while.  I saw this image made into a card recently and it reminded me of my friend who loves to quilt.  I decided I would make it for her.  I have been making so many male cards lately it was so exciting to make a girlie card.  I probably went a tad overboard!

This image is from Mo's Digital Pencil.  The paper is from October Afternoon.  I have been saving this piece for a few years.  This seemed like the ideal time to use it.  The flowers and metal pieces are from Live and Love Crafts and Wild Orchid Crafts.  I colored the image with Copics.
