Patchwork Possibilities

I want to share with you this linear patchwork design I found on SCS tutorials. I had another style in mind but I guess the pattern was an older one for which I couldn't find the directions. When I saw this sentiment which is one of the stamps in the Stampin' Up set called Word Play I knew that I wanted to use it on Rebecca's graduation card. As I thought about the words I tried to find a card design to accent it and thought about how the future will be a patchwork of moments and events that will shape her life. The paper was a stack pad I have had for a long time so I thought it would blend well on the card. The card stock is SU Creamy Caramel and Very Vanilla, the ink is Soft Suede. Rebecca really liked the colors and design. Anything that brings a smile to her face makes me happy. Next week I'll be sharing the card I made for her 18th birthday on August 29 th which will be a very special day for her. It will also mark the first day of college classes for her.
Thanks for stopping by.
