The grass is greener with you patchwork card

Hi Crafty Friends,

I have been having a great time creating patchwork background card. It's so much easier than it looks and it's a perfect way to use up scraps. When I have more time I'll do a photo tutorial on it if anyone's interested? I got addicted to making them so I have heaps of cards made but I probably won't add them all to my blog unless they're very different from each other. Just like my last post I did with hexagon cards, I'll probably show a few on one blog post so you can see variations but I don't bore you with adding individual cards. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments - for a girl plus a sentiment
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper - anything goes with patterned paper  
Creatalicious -   anything goes with optional under the sea or Fairytale
Jo's Scrap Shack - anything goes
Lemon Shortbread - anything goes 
Simon Says Stamp (Mon) - wild things (wild colours)
Simon Says Stamp (Wed) - make your own background (I patchworked it)
Through the Craftroom Door - anything goes
Word Art Wednesday -   anything goes

Thank you so much for dropping by and extra special thanks to my lovely followers and visitors that leave some beautiful comments for me, they warm my heart.
