This is why you use four by four squares and not three cos once the middle is covered up with a mat it loses it randomness. The paper is left over from making a card and rather than waste them I thought a patchwork card was the way to go.
I used the Spellbinders poinsettia dies along with the Penny Black Holly die. The sentiment is from LOTV. The strange coloured faux stitching is actually gold.
Our trip to London turned out fine, the trick is to plan before you leave especially with the underground although we only used the Jubilee line since most of the stations were catered for wheelchairs. Green Park was interesting with all the lifts. We finished the day by going to see the Jersey Boys.
