Thank you to everyone who joined in with last weeks sketch
Now to this weeks challenge, I came across a card in an old magazine this morning and thought the patchwork looked so pretty, I thought I would have a go. I also found a punch that I had not used for ages. I have lots of punches that I never seem to use anymore, such a waste as some of them make lovely embellishments

I'm sure you all have lots of little pieces of paper laying around, you know the bits you cant bring yourself to throw away

The squares are 4.4cm square and I did 3 rows of 3

After sticking them to a square card I used a green Sakura pen to make faux stitching

The little flower in the middle is my smallest flower punch, punched out twice and attached with a brad

I enjoyed making this card so much I decided to have another go

This time I did 4 rows of 3 using the same size squares and then used my biggest floral punch adding buttons for the centre this time

And this Beautiful card was sent in by Daisychain, I think the stitching and the choice of papers are just fabulous, thank you so much for joining us again this week

If you feel like having a go don’t forget to leave us a message in the comments box so we can come and see all your creations
