Hi there bloggies!
I had such fun doing this card for the latest CAS-ual Fridays Challenge. I have been meaning to attempt a “paper pieced” card for months and months … and it just never seems to occur to me when I sit down to stamp. So … I knew that the latest challenge was another reminder … and I needed to play again this time! 😀 Make sure you click on the challenge pic to see some other great ideas for paper piecing!
I know I have used a retired SU! stamp set for this card. But … when I went to find an “outline” image set … I was amazed to discover that I have very few of them. I was going to use my “Morning Cup” set … but then I pulled out this “Merci” set and decided I couldn’t go past the butterfly stamp! I think it is a great choice for paper piecing … and I even managed to piece the body of the butterfly on each of them!
I have also just popped by the Simply Stampin’ Challenge blog to find that they have a butterfly theme for their challenge this week. How FAB that I can enter this card for their challenge, too! I am pretty excited to have won some fabulous blog candy (random draw) over at SSC last week!!! I can’t wait to see what it is! 😉 Don’t forget to pop over and see the lovely DT samples for this butterfly challenge! So much gorgussness! 😀
Sorry the photos are a little dark. I hope you can see how pretty this card is.The DSP is the brand new “hostess only” DSP from SU! It is such a pretty pack … and I am keen to do some more with it! See you all again soon! Hugs xxaxx
