Patchwork Quilt

Today at Mo's Digital Pencil the theme is to create a card with patchwork. 
I chose Mo's Kai In Leaves and
Mummu's Laundry ..  I remember my grandma hanging out her hand crafted quilts on the line on a fall day just like this.  I merged the two images in Photoshop Elements.  This adorable stand was given to me by my sweet friend Grace for my birthday one year.  Her husband made it for me with her help.  

Come join the fun at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge Blog

Please read Mo's message to everyone HERE.  It is important...

  17. wow! Not only did you merge two awesome images to create a story, but they are colored so beautifully. The display stand is just the perfect touch to show everything off & fits right in with the quilt theme. My grandmother used to quilt too & it brings back a lot of memories looking at your card.
