paper piecing challenge

this weeks challenge on southernbreezes.com is paper piecing. this card technique is "faux quilting". i used scraps of paper, slicing the pieces into 3/8 inch wide strips. i cut a 1 inch square and then started placing the strips around the center square .... working from the inside to the outside. i trimmed the edges that were uneven and mounted it to a card front. i tried to choose coordinating colors from my scrap box....added some sheer ribbon and a bit of bling to the center.

i think the pinks would make a perfect baby card.....no sentiment yet, as i wait to put those on until i know exactly where and why the card is going. and since i had so much fun with the pinks, i moved on to the greens...i used my CB embossing folders on the card fronts to add some texture as well


  1. You have another winner. I like the greens, but both are pretty. I like the addition of the kitten of the day. My Flossie Mae is growing up so fast.
