ABC Christmas Quilting

Good Wednesday Morning for you all! 
We have a new Challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge this fortnight and we are up to the letter Q your host this time is the fabulously talented teamie Helen and the challenge theme she is hosting is Q for Quilting by Quilting we are asking that you make your own Patchwork/Quilted background. 

Our Fabulous Sponsors are:

and the awesome CropStop

We have 2 awesome Guest Designers Delphine and Louise so please stop by and pay them a visit on their blogs too! 
So for my card I have used some papers that I have had a while as they were not top of my link list….why? well a couple of the papers are pink! ekkk! But when I started looking for some papers to make this card with these jumped out at me and then I saw the pink
and was erm! OH! NO! pink! darn! but…. I have not used the sheet that had the huge load of pink on just a hint so all was not lost! hehehehe :0) Kinda like how it turned out though!

I have sewn the pieces together on my sewing machine and then made some super sizes faux candies and added the sentiment, the image is a Penny black and coloured with distress inks.
