FBW - Paper Piecing Challenge

Hi and welcome to another Flutter By Wednesday! This week, fellow team mate KIMBERLY gave us the challenge to use PAPER PIECING somewhere on our creation. Of course, we had to include a BUTTERFLY, FAIRY or ANGEL as well.

Ok, I'm going to be honest - with Preschool ending next week, Abby's school winding up, getting ready for a garage sale, spending time with family and gearing up for my birthday I've been SLIGHTLY overwhelmed and well, behind. SO I starting creating my card at about 10pm last night. Needless to say, the lighting at midnight isn't the best so PLEASE forgive the washed out pictures.

Moving on...I used Nurse Nora, a fabulous Swiss Pixie I received some time ago but have never used. I also used the CAS Fall-to Layout #89 for my card (flipping it and using the image in place of the sentiment).

I realized that I forgot to add SPARKLE to her wings and will be doing that NOW! Another funny story for you - wasn't sure if the challenge was PIECING or PIERCING so I did both :) Here's a close up of my fine paper PIECING skills, lol!

So do you feel like playing along with our challenge this week? Just visit the Flutter By Wednesday Blog to link your creation. PLUS have you ever thought it'd be cool to be a part of our design team? Well now is YOUR chance to let us know. We are looking for guest designers...go to the BLOG for all the details!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Too funny, Michelle!! I too had to look a couple of times about the piercing vs. piecing!! And, things are crazy with the end of our daughter's preschool! Great card, and Nurse Nora is amazing!

Michelle this is super cute!! I love that you did both piecing and piercing just so you were covered!! LOL. The FTL sketch was a great one to use with this image!

Danni said...

Umm, you are too silly...you should've been in BED not creating for this!! We could've waited a day for it...hope that your life slows down a bit!
Truly an adorable card though!! Fun to see this image pieced as I wouldn't normally think of her with paper piecing!
Hugs!
