Farewell Card for a Quilter

My DH's boss is leaving for a new job in Maryland. I asked if he wanted a card for her and he did; well, it turns out she is a quilter, so of course I had the perfect set--PTI's Quilter's Sampler and QS Additions! I used my new SU color coach to decide on a color combo. I went to Real Red and came up with Bashful Blue and Crumb Cake, their version of Kraft. Since I only have a small amount of CC, I decided to go with Gina K's heavy base weight Luxury Kraft. It was already out, because I'd made another card with it, which I will post in a couple of days. I used the Textured BB, some gingham DP trimmed with the SU scalloped border punch, and PTI's white for the image. Layer is RR, cut with Nesties. I used markers and blender pens to color the quilt blocks, and I paper pieced the bottom left square. If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you may be able to tell. I added some retired SU buttons with DMC floss to match the BB. I stamped the sentiment and the scissors, needle and thread on the inside. Brad liked it and I hope his boss will too. Thanks for stopping by!
