MIM #180: Paper Weaving Thanks

This week's Make It Monday technique is paper weaving.  It looked fun, and I certainly have scraps to spare, so last night I got to work.  I have a bunch of thank you cards to make, which is a nice switch from all the birthday cards I've been making.  My favorite part is that totally unintentionally this ended up resembling a really scrappy quilt.  And I just happen to know of a quilt I'll be receiving this next weekend from my aunt. :) She's an amazing quilter, and I love that this card will be a more personalized way to say thank you.
Stamps: PTI (Wet Paint)
Ink: PTI (pure poppy)
Paper: Echo Park (Sweet Girl)
Other: Michaels (enamel dots)
