Quilted Xmas Wishes

Good afternoon to you all in the land of blog
Hope you are all enjoying your long weekend, I know I am.  Here is a little something that I have been working on for a couple of days, but was intrigued after seeing some wonderful creations, so just had to have a go.
I made a quilted Xmas Card.  After several thoughts, I eventually reverted to digital imagery.  I used some gorgeous papers from Bearly Mine.  I searched the web for quilting templates, I saved the image and opened this image and two different papers in my CS 4 Photoshop.  I layered the template over both papers, and then cut out the purple and glued on top of the pale blue to create this quilted effect.  I added a strip of snowflake punches and some beautiful embellishments, that I ordered from Crafty Ribbons wow they deliver quick don't they.
The image of course the amazing Kenny K and the sentiment is Wild Rose Studio.  The memory box snowflake as the background for the sentiment.

A short post from me today, but thank you for all the wonderful comments on my cover girl exposure.
