Stitches - MIM #159 No Sew Quilted Cards

Playing along with the latest PTI  challenge.  The MIM #150 challenge is impressing a quilted patterned onto a card element with a cover plate or impression plate.

I used the Building Block dies to create a loosely based log cabin pattern. I used the Sunshine Impression plate for my quilting lines. I think you can see the circles best in the lower right hand corner of the pictures. 

I fussy cut the scissors and then dipped them in silver embossing powder. I used distress ink on the bottom layer of the tag and stamped the sentiment on vellum.
