LOTV Challenge #30...Paper Piecing!




Hello Everyone!

Today is Thursday and time for another Lili of the Valley Thursday Challenge. This weeks challenge is paper piecing! This technique is very easy and lots of fun! In a way, it reminds me of when I played with my paper dolls when I was a kid. Do I hear anyone asking "what in the world are paper dolls!" lol Just joking:)



I wanted to do more with this card, but yesterday went by in a blur and I wasn't able to embellish it the way I had planned. I tell you, lately the days seem like minutes and then it is over!

To see the LOTV beautiful DT cards, click here , you will definitely be inspired by some beautiful cards! Remember......you have two weeks to finish your card and you can use any stamp that you like. To submit your card for the challenge, simply link your card to LOTV blog. We can't wait to see your beautiful creations:)


Card details..........
stamp Magnolia's Butterfly Collection, c/s Neenah Solar White, DP all SU, inks Copic Markers, ribbon and half pearls

Hey Risa! Yup, time sure do fly. I can't even catch up on my commenting. . .arrggh! I feel like I'm neglecting all my blog friends! Furthermore, I've been having terrible lower back pain. I can't sit in front of my computer for too long of a time! I need to see a doctor because it's getting worse.

Love your Edwin card. Even without too many embellishements, your cards are still gorgeous because of your beautiful coloring.

Denise is a sweetheart. She's so generous. Her card is fantastic and wow, love those images. Have fun playing with them!
