Quilt for Autumn Nights

Fall brings cooler nights and need for that extra quilt on the bed. My card shows autumn colors in a quilt that I paper pieced with scraps of BasicGrey patterns from Max & Whiskers paper pad.  I spent time lining up the flowers designs in the centers of the squares of the quilt. I used stamps from Gina K Designs that I stamped on ivory cardstock with Memento Espresso Truffle ink. I colored the wood with Copics E43,44,47, YR09 and the hearts with Orange glaze pen. I dry embossed the quilt using a border embossing folder to give texture and design. I hope you can see the details.  The card base is a pumpkin cardstock and the mat is a gold cardstock both from stash. 
What better way to use my paper scraps than make a quilt?
