Faux Quilt Card - You're On My Mind

Hello!  I hope everyone had a happy Easter.  Here is another card that I made for the card party that I will be hosting in a few weeks.  I used a faux quilting technique that I have seen others use a few times.  The patterned papers I used are My Mind's Eye, the sentiment is a Stampin' Up stamp and the shape it is on is from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  The ribbon is seam binding and the button was from my stash.  The sentiment was embossed using Tim Holtz Distress embossing powder.

Here is a close-up of the sentiment.

I shared this card on the following site:
