Quilted Thank You Hearts

I needed a thank you card for a dear friend who has really helped me out recently. I had some leftover hearts printed that never made it onto a Valentine's card and thought they'd work great for a Thank You message. I was able to combine a few of the 365 Cards challenges. My goal was to do them all this year and we are quickly approaching the end of their challenge year. YIKES, I still have quite a few to crank out.

Sketch Inspiration ~ 365 Cards Day 238 ~ Super Sketchy Sunday
I really liked the grid idea and went with 6 pieces to fill out the card (and work in a few more 365 challenges). J
Inspiration
Cupcake Crafts Challenge ~ I {heart} You
Stamping Vacation Get the Music in You Challenge ~ Love of My Life
Nothing says love like HEARTS, and this card is for someone very special in my life.
Crafty Creations Challenge #106 ~ Thank You
2 Sisters Challenge ~ Hearts
 365 Cards Day 188 ~ Divide and Conquer
Divide card into 6 equal parts and decorate it so that none of the sections overlaps
365 Cards Day 286 ~ Twinchie Fun Use six 2x2 elements; I almost used 12 as my square mats are 2x2 and the hearts are about the same dimension at their wide points.
Stamping Vacation Home Sweet Home Challenge: Farmhouse Country
I used the country quilt option with my images.
365 Cards Day 247 ~ Thinking in Thirds
Divide your card into three parts so that none of the embellishments or the sentiment overlaps; I'm did three horizontal elements that don't touch - two rows of hearts and one of sentiment.
