Quilt Inspired Challenge

Get Inky Challenge Blog is having a quilt inspired challenge this week and this is the card I created for the challenge. From my stash I found this baby themed paper that I think I have had for probably 6 or 7 years.  The paper has squares of different baby related themes all on the one sheet so I just used a paper punch and created squares the size I needed for my background.  

I inked the edges of my squares and laid them down on my card in a pattern, then I added my digital image from Get Inky Stamps called spotted baby giraffe. Isn't it a cute image? 

To compete this card I added a metal tag and ribbon with my tag curler.  It had been a long time since I had the paper curler out but I do think it was a nice addition for this baby card.  

I hope you will join us at Get Inky Challenges this week.  Thank you for stopping to take a look and have a creative day.
