Just a Crafty Day - Quilt Card and Beads on a card for a Groom to the Bride

My phone is missing in I decided to play
with paper scraps and see what I could come up with. 
I knew I wanted to do a Quilt Card. A friend had mentioned she 
thought that would be something she would like to give some one.
Thought I better teach myself before I try to tell someone else how to do it.
I searched a few sites and found Jenna with her tutorial. It was a good tutorial.
I have played around with colors and a few designs
in my scraps that would work together. 
Let me know what you think.
Here is the First card I came up with.
This is made from all scrap papers.
The stamped edging is from Close To My Heart's Roxie WOG stamp set
The card base is a textured light pink cardstock,
1st layer is CTMH White Daisy cardstock
2nd layer is a textured dark purple cardstock
The Quilted layer has the following
2 designed and 3 plain card stock papers 
in White, md. Pink, & dk. Purple
I used my handy 3/4 square punch from CM
There were 8 squares from each paper strip.
5 strips of paper total. You end up with 40 squares but, you won't use all 40. 
Depending on what color you decide to cut at a diagonal will depend on the amount of squares used.

Here is the second one where I played with beads.
Making for a Groom to give to his adorable Bride

I saw a challenge at SWEET STAMPS BLOG and thought I would join in. 
What do you think!!
This will be a card
 from a Groom to the Bride.
And I have added to the following Challenges.
