Patch work quilt card

I just could not wait to use my new Basic Grey lemonade paper pad to create something. My plan was to create a background that looks like a quilt. The paper was cut into 1"X1" squares and adhered to a piece of card-stock. Then I stitched around the squares with embroidery floss by hand.

I created this card with Inky Impressions Challenge in mind. I did not use the exact colors but similar ones. The image is Pen Pal from Sugar Nellie. The image was colored in using the copic shown in the picture.
Skin- E00, E51, R20
Jeans- B97, BG72
Shirt- YG3, YG6
Hair-E11, E31, E33
Ribbons and patches- RV00, RV02 and W2 to create a shadow.

I also entered this card into the Midnight Madness Challenge.
