Bearlymine Designs Challenge Twentynine - "Patchwork Design"

Good Morning Everyone, well another week has slipped by and weve now reached our twentyninth Challenge here at Bearlymine Designs and for this one we want to see your patchwork designs on your card, and we are being sponsered this week by "Fred She Said"

They are offering a fabulous prize of $20. to spend on their website.

And we were all lucky enough to be able to choose an image to play with and I chose this one,

This image is called "Emma the Skipper" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card then used my copics to colour her and a oval Nestabilitie die to cut her out, afterwards I used a Cheery Lynn Swedish Oval diecut to mount her on.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card, the backing paper is several pages of the "Spring Blossoms" from Bearlymine Designs and you will find them here, I have cut them all into strips and then woven them into a mat that I then stuck to the blue mount and used my sewing machine with a zigzag stitch to hold it all in place.
The mounted image was then placed to the left of the card and a sentiment has been placed on the right. To finish of I have used two large Daisys and one small in the top left hand corner, these were stuck to the card with three silk leaves underneath them.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pop across to the Bearlymine Designs Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of our very talented Design Team have created for you and hopefully it will inspire you to take part in this "Patchwork Design" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
