Red, White and Blue Patchwork Blanket

Have to apologise for the picture quality there were shadows where there should not be and it looks like if my card is glued all skew I did crop it but still did not come out correct.

Red, White and Blue Patchwork Blanket

My recipe:
My sketch is from Party Time Tuesday
Again a 8X8 at the moment my favourite layout!
Use 3 different colours Red Blue and White card stock onto white as my basic card
I embossed the Red and Blue card pieces with different embossing folders to create the effect of different materials used to sew my Patchwork Blanket
My middle piece is just a bit of scrap I had in my stash and I punched the stars out with one of my punches and glued it to every second square
Added Blue and Red Stitched Ribbon to the edges of my middle semi square to create the elution of a Patchwork Blanket that is stitched
Used a few digital stamps and coloured them in with Promarkers and cut and layered them out
I used a die and cut the cotton bobbins out and embossed them with the Cuttlebug and took a white pen and highlighted the bobbins
I added a sentiment, ribbon and 3 red buttons to finish it off

All your comments are highly appreciated and I am always open for more ideas and advise!!

Happy crafting and Blogging!!!

Until the next time!! Lots of Love and Kisses!!
