The Pixie Cottage # ....Sketch or Theme!
Hello Everyone and Happy Wednesday!
Today's Pixie Cottage Challenge is to make a card based on this weeks sketch or to make a card according to this weeks theme...paper piecing.
I had lots of fun with this weeks challenge and love the different flavors (stripes, polka-dots and gingham ribbon) that give my card a light and fun flair. With the exception of Sweet Molly's head,hair and hands, everything is paper pieced with different scraps of design paper. I started with my base image and proceeded to paper piece starting at her feet and working my way up to Molly's neck and cupcake. One thing that I like about paper piecing is that it's a great way to use up some of the scraps that we have laying around.
