Whiff of Joy - Charms AND ABC Challenge - Quilting!

One card - two challenges. The Whiff of Joy challenge this week is to use a charm on your project - I thought this 'imagine' charm fitted the dreaminess of the lovely image.
Over at ABC the letter is 'Q' for Quilting, so I went for a patchwork quilt effect with faux stitching.

Papers are My Mind's Eye 'Bloom and Grow', flowers are Prima, Basic Grey brads and a Karen Foster sentiment. I used my Copics for colouring and paper pricked the stitches before drawing them in with a brown Zig pen.

Have a great day and thanks for looking xxx
