Patchwork quilt snippets

I've used snippets from my box to cut 12 squares which I stuck together and then cut with a nestie, I then put lines of faux stitching along the joins and used an ink duster around the edges before mounting it onto SU cardstock and running the whole thing through a paisley embossing folder. I then made a diecut shape for the sentiment. I got this whole idea from someone else but cannot now find the card! - sorry if you have seen this then I will credit where I got the idea from.
I'd like to go in the playground at Pixie's Crafty workshop snippet challenge #16 with this card and also enter it into the Happy Birthday challenge at Sir Stampalot this month.
