Thoroughly Modern Patchwork


The Top Note Die...what can I say, I love it! It can be used in so many ways and this is one of my favorites...a Top Note Quilt. It's perfect for all those DSP leftovers or just showing off some really pretty papers. That's what I did in this case.

The Thoroughly Modern DSP has so many fantastic prints in it, that it's hard to decide which ones to use. For this card, you don't have to decide...you can use them all!


The first card is what I designed for my last workshop. It's more monochromatic with Soft Suede, Sahara Sand and Rose Red. The second card is what the wonderfully creative girls in my workshop came up with. They added a splash of color by choosing a print with some Bermuda Bay in it. You will also notice the corner piercing on the second card...another great idea from one of the girls (Mary Beth, you're a genious ;) I love them both!

Which is your favorite? Would you go with a more monochromatic look or would you use that splash of color? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by!
