One Stitch at a Time: Quilted Summer

Hello, friends! 
Hope those in the US are enjoying the long weekend. 
I've been making up for my lack of posts this week, and had some time to play today. We've had lots of rain, so I played inside my craft room.

At Make It Monday, Lizzie invited us to create a card with embellishments above and below the sentiment.  Marcia inspired me with her very pretty card using the Quilted Summer set from Papertrey Ink so I set out to create a get well card with it.

I love the images with small patterns that coordinate with the set and quilt die, however I decided to highlight the florals. I did randomly tuck some of the quilted triangles behind the die cut flowers for a boost of color and layering. I stamped small flowers and added black centers and black stitch lines onto the panel.The pinwheels were stamped and "sparkled" with WOS. With all my elements, I grouped in threes arranging in triangles to keep the balance and suggest movement. 

I just love the sentiments with this set, and used another one inside to complete the well wishes.
Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog. Have a fantastic day!
