Patchwork cards

Hi! thought I would share with you some 
new "patchwork" cards I have made. 
I just thought these were a bit different and 
something I have been wanting to try for a while.

This first card is a regular pattern patchwork card...


It is made of 9 squares of paper, cut from Pink Petticoat papers. 
Each square has been inked around the edges and a little faux-stitching
has been added with a fineliner pen. 
I dry embossed a simple line around the edge of the squares.
I stamped the sentiment and added a couple of punched butterflies,
with a little sparkly gem on each.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The sisterhood of crafters - sentiment  focal point - 8 Sept
Crafty Calendar - atg - 1 Sept
Di's digi challenge - lots of squares - 30 Aug
Creations in pink -  mainly pink - 15 Sept

This second patchwork card is more of an irregular patchwork, made for my friend.

She loves these muted, neutral colours. 
I took a couple of papers that worked well together 
and careful cut a different sized piece from each paper. 
It was trickier than I thought, to get all the pieces to match up 
while making a patchwork effect. 
Like the last card, I inked the edges of each piece and used a brown fineliner pen to 
draw some faux-stitching around the edge of each piece. 
Again, the sentiment was stamped and punched butterflies were added. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Simon says stamp - atg - 3 Sept
Paper funday - atg - 2 Sept
Sparkles - use at least 3 patterned papers - 15 Sept
