Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge #42/ Ways To Use It Challenge 241

I was inspired to make this card when I saw Thursday's Ways To Use It Challenge #241 to use patchwork. This idea of making the card like a quilt block came into my mind. (My Mom will be proud, she loves to quilt).

Secondly, I looked at my card and realized the colors I chose would work for Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge #42 Hostessed by Cassie.
The colors are:
Chocolate Chip
Lime Green
Pink
White as neutral

I chose this fun fall set BILLIE AND MAGGIE FALL FUN designed by Wendy Hall of Louby Lou Creations for CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.
I have been sick with my asthma and now the stomach flu. I was just starting to get back to my card making and this card works for this weekend's cc, I was so excited! Yay.

Thank you for visiting me today!!
