I'm on a roll!
Crafty Sentiments Challenge which is 'Flowers' and Simon Says Stamp Challenge which has the theme 'Paper Piecing' and I've incorporated both in the one card. The card blank is a small square Craft UK card and the distressed backing paper is from a freebie Serif paper pack from Simply Cards & Papercraft. The Magnolia stamp was inked with a Memento ink pad and her sweater and socks are pieced from the Serif paper pad in yellow and her dungarees are also from that pad in the orangey red flowered paper. (The rest of her is coloured with Promarkers.) This pad is going to be useful, the colours are lovely. The corner is cut with a Spellbinders die Parisian Accents Shapeability - I love these already! The roses are from WOC and the paper flowers are cut from the Desert Blooms glittery pad. These were much more difficult to cut than I imagined and I was pleased when I'd finished - the paper is very thick. The orange 'wall' is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. It's a funny sort of card but Eric liked it!
