Quilted: Spring Birthday

I love Papertrey Ink's Quilted: Spring set designed by the 
talented Betsy Veldman.  I've used different colour 
combinations and techniques for several occasions. 
Blue/yellow versions can be seen here.
This soft pastel card is a perfect card for a birthday.

The quilt block (Quilted: Spring) was diet cut from 
white card stock; the various pieces were stamped 
with coordinating stamps (Sweet Blush and Lemon Tart).
The card front was also stamped with small floral images 
from the set and a sentiment (Quilter`s Sampler)  
with CTMH: Grey Wool ink.
The card front  and the quilt block were impressed 
with the Canvas Impression Plate
The quilt block was matted onto Lemon Tart; 
then attached to the card front.
The floral spray was die cut and stamped and 
then popped onto the front with foam adhesives.

 Card Interior
I finished the inside with a sentiment
(Keep It Simple: Birthdays) and flowers (Quilted: Spring).

Supplies (PTI unless noted)
Stamps - Quilted: Spring, Quilter's Sampler, Keep It Simple: Birthday
Inks - Lemon Tart, Sweet Blush, Spring Moss,; 
           Close To My Heart: Grey Wool

Beautiful card! I love how you stamped the flowers and brought them inside the card as well.

Oh, this is so pretty! I just ordered the Quilted: Summer set and can't wait to play with it! I'll have to remember this colour combo you used -- it's lovely!
