Card with Geometrical quilt patterns!

Hello and Happy Sunday!
 Today the card I am showing is not my forte but I am very much inspired by Deepti's creation as a Guest Designer at Here is the inspiration picture and I am inspired by square blocks!
I've always been amazed by quilt making- the patterns and the preciseness of creating this beautiful art form and decided that I wanted to translate quilting into paper crafting! Here's a little set I made...

I cut some square pieces using my pinned square die to make this quilted pattern and adhered them on my white card base using different pattern papers. 
Score then fold the paper as shown above, creating the triangular flap! The dotted squares lined up almost perfectly with my little quilt pieces, and look like  stitching. Here's a closer look:

Then I attached a heart lace doily from a different paper pattern pad and attached a same doily in vellum over it and embellish it with a cute bow and wrapped it with a stitched ribbon! When you will open one of the flap, you will see the hidden message there! I stamped the sentiment in second generation stamping to match with my color scheme as well.
Here is the inside view:
I have used lots of scraps here to add some little pics inside the frame! This is a special card for someone you love!
 I am very glad that every thing turned out well! Hope you will enjoy it!

 I have added my creation with a couple of challenges, I am inspired.
 And I would love to play in NBUS challenge hosted b a very talented designer Darnell, she has started a fun NBUS challenge with lots of generous sponsors, so come and join the fun! I have used lots of unused schtuff here,leaving only lace heart die!

I've had a go at the third set, inspired by some autumn leaves colors. I am inspired by October 2014 color palette

Supplies used:
Snippet of White CS; Snippet of a vellum; MR D.I.Y.(with Love) Designer A4 paper pack and that another one from my dear friend Vibha Craft Supply( the stripes one and under the heart one)
Spellbinders -Pierced square set; Shapeabilities Lace Hearts
Wow golden glitter sparkle powder, static pad, Versamark embossing pad; Versamark Black pigment ink and versa craft Puppy red ink
Sentiment from Mama Elephant
Bakers twine in red & white combo

I would like to enter my creation in the following challenges too: now my favorite technique is quilting style in card with stamping!

Wow, Vinita! I've never seen anything like this before! Your card is beautiful, and there seems to be so much depth and texture here with the folds. A very unique design - I love how the squares open to show the sentiment! I really enjoyed seeing this and thank you for sharing how you made it! Wonderful card!
