adventure with quilt style

Jean's prompt at Watercooler Wednesday this week is quilt style paper piecing.  I was browsing through Pinterest on a completely unrelated quest and found this card by Darlene DeVries. I thought it perfectly fit Jean's challenge, but I don't like pink, don't own any Copics, and can't color well, anyway.  I do have an awesome new Rose Garden thinlits die that I thought would work:

stamp set - Rose Wonder; ink - Baked Brown Sugar (retired); card stock - Delightful Dijon, Hello Honey; designer series paper - Lullaby (retired); Big Shot with Rose Garden thinlits; Stampin' sponge
Lately I've been using more of my retired supplies, because there's no sense owning it if I'm not going to use it, right?  This paper was what I had in mind from the start for this project, but there are some festive, fun designs in the It's My Party designer series paper stack that would work as well!

Hi Kathe, what a great card. Love the way the rose looks appliqued against the quilt pattern. I have to either begin to use some of the retired Designer Paper I've got piled up. Like you say, what is the sense of owning it if you're not going to use it? The colours in your card really pop. Love that yellow rose! Thanks so much for joining us this week for the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

You've got a super quilt thing going on Miss Kathe. If you had gone stars instead of squares I would swear you were from Texas with that yellow rose. Sorry Kathe...I couldn't help that. {grin} But that does give me an idea for using my retired triangle punch.
Thanks for joining us again on the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and reminding us to dip into our stash.
