Embellish Magazine color challenge - quilt block card

I love the color combo that Embellish Magazine challenged us with so much I just had to make another card!

A few years back I decided to make my hubby a quilt and I chose a Fence Rail design. It's made up of small strips sewn into blocks, then the blocks are all sewn together (in alternating directions) to make up the quilt. My quilt was much loved, well used and has since been retired. Seeing it hanging on the quilt rack in my bedroom inspired me to try out this little card....

I had a hard time not adding a little sparkly bling to this card, but it's going into the collection I'm sending to Operation Write Home and they can't have sparkles getting onto the service men/womens uniforms. They send blank cards to soldiers for them to write home to loved ones with...what a great thing to do isn't it?!?!

DeNami Design stamps - ornamental flowers, zigzag stitch border & sentiment
Cardstock - cream, light brown
Inks - Momento & Staz-on Timber brown
Markers - TomBow
DeNami Design chocolate brown grosgrain ribbon

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think....good or bad....or even better - what would you have done differently??...crafty minds wanna know!

This is beautiful, Tina! I can totally see the resemblance to the inspiration picture!

Love that you are getting a collection of cards to send to OWH! Whoever receives this card will be very blessed!
