Happy Birthday Quilt Card

I made this card for my Mom's birthday.  We have been slowly working on piecing quilts so when I saw this card that Debbie made, I knew I had to try it out. 
 The paper I used was actually Christmas paper, but I thought it worked perfectly for a winter birthday card.  With all the embellishments I used, this card was quite thick, so thankfully I was able to hand deliver it.
The ribbon and stamped sentiment are both from Paper Sweeties.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
