Inspired by Pinterest

Hello!  Today is my monthly post over at The Craft's Meow Blog, and I decided to use a photo that I found on Pinterest to make my card.  Here's the photo, from the Nana Company blog:

Before hexagons were "in", there was a quilt pattern called Grandmother's Flower Garden, and that's where this little flower comes from.  Using several TCM sets, here's the card that it inspired:
