Patchwork planet

This is a card I made for the sketch challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. I made a card similar to this one last week, but it fit the sketch challenge so well that I thought it deserved another go. I had this patchwork idea going around in my head these last couple of days ever since I sewed on my card last week. I think what would be really fun would be to make a quilt block on a card. I never got too much into quilting, but I know someone who could probably help me with that. (You know who you are!)

This card is very straight forward: I used a square punch to punch out the squares, then taped them to the cardstock, sewed it on zig zag stitch with the sewing machine, and the stamped and colored my image. I used regular stampin' up markers for the coloring. The brads and paper are all from Stampin' up as well. Most of the paper comes from the Stampin' up 6 x 6 sampler pad, which I thought was perfect for a project like this one.

Well, everyone, have a great Thursday. I have the day off tomorrow so don't be surprised to see more cards posted!
