A recently made stamping friend (non SCS!)sent me a card, and enclosed in the card were 4 scraps of patterned paper and 1 ribbon with the challenge that I make a vintage/Victorian card with those items. Well, I had to add a few more items, but this is what I came up with. It was pieced together much in the way an old crazy quilt would have been. There is one line of machine feather stitching on this card, but I'm not sure it'll show up in the photo. It is at the seam joining the blue floral paper to the script paper. So, I pieced and ribboned and cut and tied and bowed and stamped a bit, too, and the result is this Crazy Quilt Wedding Card.

This is absulutely gorgeous! The paper looks like real lace. The piece behind the heart reminds me of an old lace tablecloth that my mother-in-law use to put on her table many, many, many years ago. You did a GREAT job on this challenge.
